Conducting Travel Tallies

Due to the COVID pandemic SRTS Student Arrival and Departure Tallies are not required as part of the 2022 application submission. Grant recipients will be required to submit them upon notification of the grant approval.

  • Student Arrival and Departure Tallies track the number of children walking and biking to and from school. The results of the tally will provide valuable information such as estimating traffic congestion and environmental issues, understanding traffic patterns, etc. 
  • You can download the Student Arrival and Departure Tally and have your results tabulated and summarized by Safe Routes to School. Please mail or scan and email all completed tallies with a cover letter identifying your school name, district, municipality and contact information (name, phone, address and email) to:
