Missouri Safe Routes to School Coalition announced

The Missouri Safe Routes Coalition is dedicated to moving Safe Routes to Schools forward in Missouri.

Safe Route to School is a program to encourage children to walk and bicycle to school more often through encouragement, education, and better facilities.

Kids that walk or bicycle to school more often are healthier and do better academically.

MoDOT has hired its Safe Routes to School Coordinator and formed a Safe Routes to School Advisory Committee. The Committee will meet for the first time April 13th.

The Missouri Safe Routes Coalition will help share information, build consensus, and provide support and encouragement for individuals, teachers, parents, students, or advocates who want to start Safe Routes to School programs in their communities, regionally, or statewide.

The best way to get involved with the Safe Routes Coalition right now is the join the Missouri Safe Routes Coalition email list..
