Safe Routes to School

SR2S is a national effort that supports students and families traveling to and from schools in ways that increase healthy activity, reduce traffic, increase safety, and contribute to a healthy environment.

Our SR2S partnership between schools, neighborhoods and community leaders enjoys the support of the Corvallis Police Department,  the City of Corvallis Transportation Department, the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition, and the Benton County Health Department.

  • A key activity is a monthly Walk/Bike to School (WB2S) Day at participating elementary schools.
  • These events usually take place on the first or second Wednesday of the month.
  • Some schools report more than 80 percent student participation.

Volunteers are welcome to assist with these community oriented activities.
