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 email that their student has arrived at school.  Currently, 3 of the City’s Elementary schools are using the Active4 Me program.   For more information on this program please visit:  http://www.active4.me/

The Bike Fun Fest event is similar to many Bike Rodeos that are normally organized by City governments, schools, school districts, or other organizations. This event provides the opportunity for children to learn the importance of bike safety, how to maintain their bikes, and the opportunity to test their riding skills by going through multiple obstacle courses. In addition, the Bike Fun Fest event teaches students how to take care of their bike, stresses the importance of always wearing a helmet, promotes a more active lifestyle, and much more!
