  • Gresham's Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program partners with local schools to make walking, biking, and rolling to school fun and safe for all kids in Gresham.

    Walk, bike and roll safely to school

    The City has partnered with interested schools across Gresham to organize everything from pedestrian and bike safety education in classrooms to Walk + Roll to School Day events. We also work with schools to create Safe Routes to School action plans, which help identify infrastructure improvements to apply for grant funding.

    City assistance for your school

    • Engaging teachers and parents to plan and hold SRTS events at schools across Gresham
    • Providing curriculum to educate students on how to safely walk and bike
    • Supporting Walk + Roll to School Days twice a year (October and May)
