Safe Routes to School

TDG has partnered with the National Center for Safe Routes to School (NCSRTS) to develop and offer this course throughout the U.S. We have multiple trainers on staff, and have also conducted train-the-trainer workshops for the NCSRTS. The course can be taught as a half-day or full-day workshop, and includes a walkabout to observe conditions around a school.

For more information contact the National Center for Safe Routes to School.


The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) offers several training courses and workshops based on their Urban Street Design Guide and Urban Bikeway Design Guide. They use certified trainers to deliver courses in communities that are not members of NACTO. TDG staff Bill Schultheiss, Jeremy Chrzan, Nick Jackson, and Rob Burchfield are among the 19 certified trainers.
