The Safe Routes to School program provides resources, technical assistance and project funding to encourage and enable students in grades K-12 to walk or ride their bike to school. A comprehensive approach to SRTS includes both infrastructure and non-infrastructure countermeasures and programs. 

This program is funded at $5 million annually for projects in 5 categories: Engineering, Encouragement, Education, Enforcement and Evaluation. Funds are available for:

  • Infrastructure projects within two miles of schools serving K-12 students. ODOT will reimburse up to 100% of eligible costs for all phases, including preliminary engineering, detailed design, right-of-way, construction, and construction engineering. Project limit: $500,000.
  • Non-infrastructure activities such as education, encouragement, enforcement or evaluation. Non-infrastructure funding may be requested for assistance with the development of plans. ODOT will reimburse up to 100% of eligible costs for items such as training and materials, program supplies, small safety and education incentives, and public awareness campaigns. Project limit: $60,000 or $120,000 for a two-year project.
