Active Transportation Safety Program
Supported by the California Department of Transportation's (Caltrans) Active Transportation Program (ATP), the Active Transportation Resource Center (ATRC) provides technical assistance and resources to Caltrans ATP awardees. As part of the ATRC, the California Department of Public Health's (CDPH) Active Transportation Safety Program (ATSP) staff assist local communities with creating active transportation non-infrastructure programs, including Safe Routes to School (SRTS), through targeted trainings, technical assistance, and resources to implement safe and successful strategies throughout California.
ATSP's purpose is to :
- build and support capacity among local SRTS and other active transportation non-infrastructure (NI) programs;
- conduct activities that complement and inform Caltrans' ATP infrastructure projects, including assisting jurisdictions that have not yet received funding;
- engage low-income schools and communities in establishing active transportation programs; and ultimately,
- increase the number of individuals who can safely walk and bicycle to school as a mode of transportation.
