The Eugene-Springfield Safe Routes to School regional team is a partnership between Eugene School District 4J, Bethel School District and Springfield Public Schools, with regional support from Lane Transit District. We work to create safe, easy, and fun ways for kids to walk, bike, skate, scoot, bus or carpool to school.

What We Do

To accomplish our mission, we use the 6 E’s of Safe Routes to School: equity, education, encouragement, engineering, enforcement, and evaluation. Our strategic plan describes our goals and guides our work.

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!

 

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:

Equity

Ensuring resources benefit all demographic groups regionally, with special attention to historically underserved populations.

Engineering

Partnering with road authorities to improve the built environment to support safety for students and pedestrians.

Education

Bike and pedestrian safety in the schools and the community for students and their families.

Encouragement

Motivating children to use active and shared transportation for their school commute. Activities include Walking School Buses and Walk + Roll to School Day/Challenge.

Evaluation 

Data collection and planning to gauge the effectiveness of our programs and work towards a better future.

Enforcement

Supporting crossing guard programs and encouraging all road users to obey traffic laws and share the road safely.
