The Moreno Valley Safe Routes to School Program reached 11 schools focusing on education and encouragemnt.
Our proposal included education and encouragement components of the Safe Routes to School Pedestrian Facility Improvements program and added tremendous value and support for the infrastructure improvements that were recently completed. The program strives to engage students and families through development of safe pedestrian and bicycling habits, and encouraging use of newly created pedestrian and bicycle friendly improvements.
Walk ‘n Rollers worked with Moreno Valley High School to develop a PSA, broguht education elements to seven elementary schools and planned a Walk & Roll Festival and Bike to School Days for the Spring of 2020.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 forced us to refocus our efforts from in person activities to online or contactless activities. We instead offered weekly activity calendars and community bike repair days.
Project timeline: August 2019 – July 2020
The Moreno Valley Safe Routes to School program includes fun activities for kids of all ages.

Active transportation is more than getting kids out of cars and reducing traffic and pollution at school sites. SRTS programming also teaches children life skills such as responsibility, good decision making, time management and traffic, and community awareness. We are excited about the opportunity to introduce these elements to the students and residents of Moreno Valley.
There are many elements involved with this program revolving around education and encouragement.
This program is funded through the ATP grant program. Visit Moreno Valley for more details.
