The Palo Alto Safe Routes to School Partnership

The City of Palo Alto is committed to creating and sustaining a community partnership with the Palo Alto Unified School District and Palo Alto PTA to reduce risks to students and encourage more families to walk and bike or use other alternatives to driving more often. Our Safe Routes to School program is part of a national movement targeting improved safety and active transportation choices for families and communities.

The  Palo Alto Safe Routes to School Partnership brochure describes our program in detail. Palo Alto’s Safe Routes to School Partnership has developed a Five-Year Work Plan outlining its goals and strategies for achieving them through 2022. Five-Year Work Plan goals and strategies depend on the Safe Routes to School Partnership’s funding and capacity, and may be subject to change as demand dictates.
