Transforming Health in our Communities

Active Routes to School (ARTS)

Active Routes to School is a project of the NC Safe Routes to School Program and a partnership between the NC Department of Transportation and the NC Department of Public Health. The goal of Active Routes to School is to increase the number of students safely walking and biking to school.

Here are some reasons to give walking or biking to school a try:

  • It’s Fun! – Walking and bicycling is a fun, easy way to get physical and be independent
  • Healthier Habits – Walking and bicycling, especially to school, is a great to start your day off right and can instill lifelong healthy habits
