School walking audits and public meetings are currently underway for the Salinas Safe Routes to School Plan. In Monterey County alone, majority of our children are driven to school due to limited transportation options therefore causing traffic congestion on local roads in the morning and afternoon. The goal of the project is to improve traffic safety for students biking and walking to 44 schools in Salinas.

Residents are encouraged to take a quick 5-minute survey and/or share input using the Street Story map to provide information on traffic hazards, crashes, near misses or safe places you’ve experienced while walking or bicycling in Salinas. Please visit the Salinas Safe Routes to School Plan webpage to take the survey, share you input, or to learn more about the Salinas Safe Routes to School Plan: https://ecoact.org/planningsalinas/

The Safe Routes to Schools planning process is a partnership between the Transportation Agency for Monterey County, City of Salinas, Monterey County Health Department, Ecology Action, and the Salinas City, Salinas Union, Alisal, and Santa Rita School Districts.
