New Jersey Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a statewide initiative to enable students to safely walk and bicycle to school.
NJ SRTS Mission: Empower and assist communities with identifying issues, creating partnerships and implementing projects and programs to encourage walking and biking to and from school as a safe, daily activity.
NJ SRTS Vision: Develop a culture and environment where walking and bicycling to school is safer, more appealing and a part of daily life for students throughout New Jersey.
The NJ SRTS Resource Center and New Jersey Bicycle and Pedestrian Resource Center assist public officials, transportation and health professionals, and the general public in creating a safer and more accessible walking and bicycling environment through primary research, education and dissemination of information about best practices in policy and design. The Centers are supported by the New Jersey Department of Transportation through funds provided by the Federal Highway Administration.
