Summary Reports

Mode share is the percentage of students using a particular means of transportation, such as walking, biking or riding in the family car. Monitoring changes in mode share - whether different modes are used more or less from year to year - is one way to measure the effectiveness of the Safe Routes to School program. Are students walking and biking more than last year? Are there fewer cars at pick-up and drop-off times? What are some of the factors that affect the decision to walk, bike or roll to school? 

SRTS multi-modal

The semi-annual student travel survey asks these questions and more. Parents of K-8 students at 100 schools receive the survey in the mail in October and May each school year. After each survey period, Safe Routes to School produces a brief summary of the results.
