What We Do
Our Mission is to serve a diverse community of parents, students, and organizations: advocating for and promoting the practice of safe bicycling and walking to and from schools throughout the Eugene Springfield area.
To accomplish our mission, we use the 6 E’s of Safe Routes to School:
Data collection and planning to gauge the effectiveness of our programs and work towards a better future.
Bike and pedestrian safety in the schools and the community for students and their families.
Motivating children to use active and shared transportation for their school commute. Activities in our region include Walking School Buses and Walk + Roll to School Day/Challenge.
Partnering with road authorities to improve the built environment to support safety for students and pedestrians.
Supporting crossing guard programs and encouraging all road users to obey traffic laws and share the road safely.
Ensuring that our resources are benefiting all demographic groups across the Eugene-Springfield region, with special attention to historically underserved populations.
