The Palo Alto Safe Routes to School PROGRAM - Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Education 

The Palo Alto Safe Routes to School Program coordinates bicycle and pedestrian safety education.

As the number of students who use different types of transportation to commute (for example: walking, biking, carpooling, and transit) has risen over the years, the scope of the City's Safe Routes to School education offerings has grown. The 2018-2019 core education programs reached approximately 5,888 students, or roughly 49% of total PAUSD enrollment.
