Newton Safe Routes to School (SRTS) works to promote walking, biking, and taking the bus to school through encouragement, education, infrastructure improvements, and safety enforcement. Our goal is to create a healthy community for everyone.

We meet monthly at 9:30 a.m. at the Waban Library. Our next meeting is February 7 and will focus on safety improvements at Memorial Spaulding, an introduction to Vision Zero, and creating a Quiet Streets Mobility Network across Newton.

Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Evaluation, Engineering, Equity. Click here to see what the Task Force does in each of these areas.
