Want to help kids navigate Philadelphia safely and confidently? Looking to teach your children or students about traffic safety but don’t know where to start? Safe Routes Philly is here to help!
Safe Routes Philly (SRP) is Philadelphia’s youth bicycle and pedestrian safety education program. SRP works on a “train the trainers” model by sharing educational resources and hosting events with parents, caregivers, and educators. This helps reach kids where they are most comfortable, in their classrooms, communities, and at home.
All resources are free and available for any use. Check out some of our most popular resources:
