Safe Routes to School in Fairfax

A resource for Safe Routes to School activiites


FABB is working with parents, school administrators, and other organizations to encourage more Fairfax students to walk and bike to school. We are supporting International Walk to School Day and Bike to School Day events in the county. Other events include Vienna's Walking Wednesdays and Wolfies Bike Train.

The Safe Routes to School Program in Virginia is managed by the Virginia Department of Transportation. Several Fairfax schools have received SRTS funds to promote walking and biking to school and to help fill in gaps in the walk/bike network leading to school.

A major goal is for Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) to hire a full time SRTS coordinator. That person would work with all interested county and city schools to promote walking and biking to school, bicycle and pedestrian safety programs, and prioritizing infrastructure improvements to create safe walk/bike routes. FCPS recently submitted a SRTS application to obtain funding for a SRTS coordinator.
