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.”

2017/18 Funding Update

CUSD was granted SRTS funding this year as of February 1. SMCOE entered into a new funding cycle with C/CAG this year, and since the federal fiscal year begins in October, funds were delayed this school year by 8 months. Due to this delay, the decision was made to grant funds through the next school year. The funds granted are significantly lower than in past years.

2017-2018 SRTS Plan

  • This October six CUSD schools participated in International Walk to School Day (see results below).

International Walk to School Day Results - October 4, 2017

Congratulations to all Cabrillo Unified students who chose to participate in International Walk to School Day this year!

  • Over 625 students were tracked taking an active form of transportation to school, such as walking, biking, skateboarding or scooting.
  • And schools tracked about 570 students carpooling, riding a school bus, or taking SamTrans to school.
