We at the National Center for Safe Routes to School (National Center) believe in the importance and joy of safe walking and biking. We provide ways for communities to get started and offer the best information available to make the future they envision a reality.
We recognize the value of having a chance to try something new—like walking to school!—and have seen how events, such as Walk to School Day, can bring elected officials and community members together to commit to improving safety for all. We also know how creating walkable and bikeable places enhances an entire community’s quality of life. At the National Center, we coordinate Walk to School Day and Bike to School Day in the USA to help communities create the momentum needed for lasting change.
Our work uses research-based evidence to highlight what works and why, and we translate this research into education, professional development tools and training to provide communities the technical support they need to make community-enhancing decisions.
