Bike Officers

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs are typically organized at the individual school level or among a cluster of schools or school districts. As a Bike Officer, you know better than anyone, the challenges and hazards of dealing with traffic as a vulnerable road user. You are in a unique position to assist children with bicycle and pedestrian safety issues. You can be a catalyst for helping a school community fully engage in Safe Routes to School.
