Alta plans, designs, and implements Safe Routes to School engineering projects across the country that create safe, comfortable, and exciting opportunities for students to walk and bike to school.
SRTS engineering work includes many types of projects including quick-build projects, temporary demonstration projects (tactical urbanism), and permanent capital improvement projects.
Demonstration projects allow public agencies, community partners, and people walking, bicycling, taking transit, and driving to evaluate potential infrastructure improvements before potentially investing in permanent changes. These projects can also add fun and engaging placemaking elements to the community, and there are often opportunities for community members to help design and install various components of these projects.
SRTS Engineering (Infrastructure) helps communities transform their streets into safe spaces for children using active modes of transportation to get to school. From intersection design and bike lanes, to dedicated routes, SRTS infrastructure helps children regain independence in their communities while promoting climate-positive habits from an early age.
