Description and Purpose
The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program encourages youth and their families to choose walking, bicycling, and other active ways to get to and from school. The program is an increasing effort to increase safety and promote walking and bicycling to school though the "5Es: engineering, education, enforcement, encouragement, and evaluation." The AAMPO in cooperation with the City of Ames and Ames Community School District (ACSD) developed the SRTS maps for the ACSD's five elementary schools and one middle school. The AAMPO staff updates the SRTS maps as necessary and the current maps are linked below.
