Safe Routes to School

Building on a national movement called Safe Routes to School, Lynn Food and Fitness Alliance is working with community and schools partners to ensure that every student in Lynn has the ability to safely walk or bike to school.

In partnership with Lynn Public Schools, Lynn Department of Public Works, and the community we are working to assess the walkability of streets surrounding schools, identify built features (sidewalks, crosswalks, signage, etc.) that could use improvement, and connect pedestrian and bike safety resources to schools. Most Lynn Public Schools already have the distinction of being “community schools” with large walking bases, and our goal is to continue active commuting to school by ensuring that that those routes are safe and accessible.
