School Travel Plans


SRTS travel plans include strategies for Education, Encouragement, Enforcement and Evaluation activities, as well as recommendations for physical changes to sidewalks, roadway crossings and trails leading to their campus. SRTS Travel Plans are an excellent opportunity to:

  • Bring together key stakeholders to collaborate and identify what the needs are and how to improve walking and biking conditions.

  • Develop a comprehensive road map for SRTS implementation.

  • Prioritize next steps.

  • Build momentum and support. 

  • Establish a foundation for future grant applications.

  • Achieve Gold-level Partner status!

Creating a SRTS Travel Plan is relatively straightforward once you know the steps. Watch our webinar on How to Create a SRTS Travel Plan, or take a look at our Travel Plan Toolbox, which includes a series of tip sheets and corresponding activity worksheets that address each step in the travel plan development process. The filled-out activity worksheets can even be bound together to create a plan!

In addition to these resources, the South Carolina SRTS Resource Center also provides technical assistance to schools to prepare SRTS travel plans. You can:

  • Contact your School Outreach Coordinator (SOC) or call the SC Safe Routes to School Resource Center’s toll-free helpline (855.4SC.SRTS) with any question you may have about the SRTS travel plan development process. 

  • Request a safety assessment through your SOC.

  • Request support for developing a SRTS travel plan by contacting your SOC.
