Welcome to the Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools Resource Center!
The mission of Alameda County Safe Routes to Schools (SR2S) is “Healthy Kids, Safer Streets, Strong Communities.” The SR2S program organizes and supports fun encouragement and educational activities to get more families safely walking, biking, carpooling, and taking transit to school throughout all areas of Alameda County. This Resource Center website is your one-stop to learn about upcoming countywide events, download or request materials, get step-by-step instruction on organizing activities, and find out how to connect with other champions at your local SR2S Task Force. The Resource Center is meant to provide all the information and materials to allow parents, teachers, school administrators and other program “champions” build and sustain SR2S in their schools and communities.
