Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is a national movement seeking to make safer and easier walking and bicycling routes for children to school through fun, educational, and encouragement programs.
The City of Stockton developed its first SRTS Plan in December 2017.
The Stockton SRTS Plan documents existing walking and cycling near our schools and recommends projects and programs to help reduce the number of school-related vehicle trips – creating a healthier, safer, more sustainable and environmentally sound community with better air quality and less traffic congestion.
The City’s vision for a comprehensive umbrella plan moving forward is guided by the 5 E’s of SRTS:
The City’s SRTS Plan includes 64 schools in four school districts: Stockton Unified School District, Lodi Unified School District, Lincoln Unified School District, and Manteca Unified School District.
The City of Stockton is planning improvements near the following schools: John Marshall Elementary, Taylor Elementary, Pittman Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, McKinley Elementary, and George W. Bush Elementary.
The SRTS Plan project team conducted infrastructure field reviews around the 64 participating Stockton-area schools to develop a list of project recommendations for students and families to feel safer walking or riding a bicycle to school.
The project lists included in the plan include:
The SRTS Plan outlines existing Safe Routes to School efforts for Stockton-area schools and provides engineering and program recommendations for each school to help walking or riding a bicycle to school feel safer and more enjoyable for students and their families.
A complete street is planned, designed, operated, and maintained to provide safe mobility for all users, including bicyclists, pedestrians, transit vehicles, truckers, and motorists, appropriate to the street’s function.
