Safe Routes to School Webinar

This webinar provides an overview of the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programme by An Taisce and the National Transport Authority with panel members from some Dublin Local Authorities providing examples of projects and plans in their areas. The Safe Routes to School Programme is designed to encourage as many pupils and students as possible in primary and post-primary schools to walk and cycle. It has three aims: - To accelerate the delivery of walking/scooting and cycling infrastructure on key access routes to schools. - To provide “front of school” treatments which will enhance access to your school grounds. - To expand the amount of bike parking available at schools. The Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Programme launched in March 2021 and was open to all schools in Ireland to apply for active travel funding and delivery. The programme is an initiative of the Department of Transport and supported by the Department of Education. It is operated by the Green-Schools Programme in partnership with the National Transport Authority (NTA) and the local authorities.
