Safe Routes to School
Few transportation issues are more important to us than the safety of our children and youth as they travel in and around their communities. At Toole Design, we’ve expanded our Safe Routes to School (SRTS) practice to address all aspects of youth travel. Every project presents an opportunity to consider the differing needs of youth and improve safety for all road users.
We approach SRTS through the lens of Vision Zero and the Safe System approach to traffic safety. Toole Design has over 20 years of unrivaled experience in every aspect of youth travel and SRTS, including planning, design and engineering, program and curriculum development, and program evaluation.
We have developed countless infrastructure plans and project designs focused on youth travel and have conducted systemic safety analysis of youth pedestrian crashes to inform Vision Zero efforts. We have developed federal and state SRTS resources and strategic plans, staffed and implemented state and local SRTS programs, and created and delivered safety education and training.
