City of Pittsburgh's "Safe Routes to School"
After a competitive application process, the City of Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) has announced the four inaugural "Champion Schools" within the City of Pittsburgh to kick-off the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program for the 2020-2021 school year. Of those four schools, we are honored to have Propel Hazelwood named.
SRTS is a national program focused on improving communities by increasing the number of students biking and walking to school and developing their skills as safe users of our public streets. The goal of the Safe Routes to School program is to educate school age children in safe walking and biking practices, encourage children to use an active mode of transportation, provide engineering improvements around schools and engage with community organizations how Safe Routes to School should begin.
