Safe Routes Philly

Helping communities create safe, healthy environments for students to walk, bike, and roll to school.


As part of Vision Zero—the City’s pledge to reduce traffic deaths to zero by 2030—Philadelphia is committed to developing quality safe transportation curriculum for all Philadelphia children. Young people have an important role to play in Vision Zero, and deserve to be able to get to school, go to the playground, or walk to a friend’s house without fear of traffic.
