About Safe Routes to School

The Health Planning Council of Northeast Florida (HPCNEF) is excited to continue the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) to our 7-county region of northeast Florida starting July 2017. This a growing transportation justice movement motivating students, parents, schools, and communities throughout the United States.

Our goals are to increase public health, improve quality of life, lower air pollution, and eliminate safety barriers to increase the number of children walking and bicycling to school. Over 4-decades, school children are living less active lifestyles, childhood obesity has more than tripled, and childhood asthma prevalence is at a all time high. Safe Routes to School is a bucket-brigade– by engaging the next generation in active transportation these children are gaining a wealth of healthy behaviors and habits to shape the generous years ahead of them and shape the generations after them.
