Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a national program which endeavors to make it safer and easier for children to be able to walk, bike and roll to school. SRTS encourages good health, exercise and walking and bicycling safety. Lancaster’s SRTS program is a multi-year project which will establish plans and programs for the 30 public schools in the Lancaster area. City of Lancaster staff is partnering with Lancaster School Districts, Antelope Valley Partners for Health, and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to create a City-wide SRTS Master Plan. The plan will improve infrastructure around Lancaster’s public schools, as well as launch educational safety programs in the schools.
