No problem. 

Add your comments about traffic safety issues around schools that you would like to see included in the Safe Routes to School Plan. 

Ex. Missing bike lanes, broken sidewalks, unsafe crosswalks, drivers going too fast in specific locations, etc.

Become a school stakeholder.

We have completed two public meetings that took place on October 2, 4, and 10 and are now looking for parents, neighbors and community members to act as stakeholders for each school. 

We'd love to hear from you.

Traffic violence affects cyclists and pedestrians more here.

Our goal is zero traffic-related injuries for your children.

While biking and walking account for only 8% of trips in unincorporated Santa Cruz County, cyclists and pedestrians are involved in 26% of injury crashes.

In 2015, Santa Cruz County was ranked 1st out of all counties in California for bicycle crashes that resulted in injuries or fatalities. 

To sign up for an audit, enter your contact info above. 

Over the next two years, members of our community will create a Safe Routes to Schools plan for 16 schools in Scotts Valley, Aptos, and Live Oak to make it safer and easier for students to walk and bike to school. 

The Safe Routes to Schools Plan is complete! 

Read the final plan at the link below and join us to support the Plan’s adoption by the Board of Supervisors. Hard copies of the Plan will also be available at the Scotts Valley, Live Oak and Aptos libraries.
