Student Travel Survey

As part of an on-going comprehensive effort to evaluate strategies and procedures, Safe Routes to School surveys parents of K-5 students twice a school year about student travel to and from school. SR2S is required to administer the survey in order to receive federal Safe Routes to School funding. The survey is mailed home to parents in English, Chinese, Russian, Somali, Spanish, or Vietnamese. There are currently 65 Portland schools receiving the survey, a mixture of K-5, 6-8, and K-8 schools.

SR2S Travel Survey English

Each year after the fall survey is complete, SR2S updates school-specific reports to share with families and the school community. This one-page report showcases a school's mode share over time, by distance from home to school, and in comparison to other schools in the same high school cluster. A summary of the fall 2013 survey also reviews the progress thus far of Portland's Safe Routes to School program.

Bike Rack Inventory

In fall 2011 Safe Routes to School began collecting information about the number, quality, and condition of bike parking at schools. As funding and resources become available, this list will help allocate bike racks to schools that need them and ensure that bike parking will be as convenient and accessible as possible at all schools.

Bike Rack Inventory February 2014

Some schools have yet to be surveyed, and several have received bike parking updates since initial inspection. If you have bike rack updates for your school please send them to taylor.sutton@portlandoregon.gov.
