The City of Avondale’s SRTS program is a partnership between the City and the school districts within the City. The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program’s aim to make it safer for students to walk and bike to school. A SRTS study assesses existing conditions to identify barriers discouraging students from walking and biking to school and develops recommendations for safety improvements and measures to encourage walking and bicycling to school.

The City of Avondale, in partnership with the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), will be conducting Safe Routes to School (SRTS) studies at the elementary schools within the city. The studies are conducted by a professional traffic engineer based upon the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Traffic Safety for School Areas Guidelines and standard traffic engineering practices. The goal of the studies is to develop a list of recommendations that may be implemented over time as funds can be secured.

Parents are also encouraged to use bus services for those children that live outside of a school’s walking boundary or that may require special services. Questions regarding bus transportation should be directed to the respective school district.
