How to Plan a Walk and Bike to School Day

September 23 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Student transportation safety has been a top priority throughout our Florida communities. The Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program has provided opportunities for schools and communities to work together, helping to improve safety for families walking and biking to school. Some of the efforts that have improved school travel safety include pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure additions and improvements, enforcement, safety education in the schools, and events and activities that encourage families to be more active in their communities. Over the years, Walk and Bike to School day events have given schools and families a chance to be a part of the positive impacts walking and biking has in their communities.

In this webinar, we’ll provide details on how to plan a Walk and Bike to School Day event. You’ll learn steps for initiating a walk to school day, the planning involved, how to coordinate with schools and local partners, and the steps for carrying out your own walk and bike to school day event in your community. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the process that goes into a walk and bike to school day event.

Learning Objectives:
✔ Describe the benefits of walk to school events.
✔ Identify steps for planning a “walk to school day” event.
✔ Provide examples of the various partners involved.

SRTS is a statewide program, funded by the FDOT, whose goal is to make it safer for more children to walk and bike to school. This training is being brought to you by FDOT through the Florida Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) Center. The Florida LTAP Center provides quality training, technical assistance, & technology transfer to the Florida local transportation workforce.
