The Georgia Safe Routes to School Program aims to make it safer for students to walk and bike to school and works to help communities develop safe, accessible routes through improvements such as sidewalks, signage, and bicycle lanes. By starting with children and the trip to school, communities become safe places for everyone to walk and bike.
