Safe Routes to School Program (SRTS)

About SRTS

Cabrillo Unified School District’s Safe Routes to School Program is part of a countywide initiative to provide education and programs that will enable school children and families to walk, bicycle and carpool more often to school. CUSD began participating in this program during the 2012/2013 school year. All Cabrillo Unified schools are now participating in the program.

The overall goal of the program is “to make San Mateo County a healthier, safer, more sustainable and environmentally sound community with improved air quality and less traffic congestion by reducing the number of school related automobile trips.”

“The San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) is designated to serve as the lead agency for implementation of SRTS projects and programs. The City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG) is the fiscal agent responsible for administering funds for the SRTS Program.”

Half Moon Bay Walk & Bike Survey

Cabrillo Unified School District is requesting families to provide feedback regarding safe routes for pedestrians and bicyclists in the city of Half Moon Bay. Your feedback will help the city understand where sidewalks, street crossings, bikeways and other pedestrian and bicycle improvements are needed. Please submit only one survey per person.
