Who We Are

Eugene-Springfield Safe Routes to School is a community approach to encourage and enable more people to walk and bike to school safely. We work to create safe, easy, and fun ways for kids to walk, bike, or roll to school.

What We Do

To accomplish our mission, we use the 6 E’s of Safe Routes to School: evaluation, education, encouragement, engineering, enforcement, and equity.

Get Involved

Lead a Walking School Bus, help with a Walk + Roll to School event or Bike Rodeo, teach kinders to ride bikes, or support a bike safety community ride! There are so many ways to get involved!
