Safe Routes Programs
|Active 4 Me is an innovative program that schools can use to increase the number of students using active transportation to and from school. (Walking or Biking) The program uses barcode technology to capture trips to school and computes the impact each trip has on CO2, gas, dollars, and calories. Each student is given a barcode tag and it’s entered into the active4.me database. On program days, a volunteer scans in each student as they arrive, capturing that trip. This data can then be summarized and posted on the school's web site. An additional service offered with this program is the ability to immediately notify a parent by text(SMS), phone, or e-mail that their student has arrived at school. Currently, seven of the City’s elementary schools are using the Active4 Me program. For more information on this program please visit: www.active4.me |

|Weekly Walking and Biking Clubs, also known as Walking Wednesdays or Walking Fridays, this program works in conjunction with Active 4 me. Parents and students from all over the community make a commitment to walk or bike to school on any given day of the week for the entire year! Each student who wants to walk or bike to school receives a barcode tag to keep on their backpack. Once they arrive to school, a parent volunteer scans each tag to track trips to school - making them eligible for prizes. |
In addition, Weekly Walking & Biking Clubs raises driver awareness of children walking and biking, helps parents and children identify walking and biking barriers, promotes a more active lifestyle, and much more!
