Safe Routes to School

Since Arlington hosted its first event, participation has continued to grow. Whether you’re new to walking and rolling or a seasoned expert, don’t miss the chance to discover the countless benefits.

Due to COVID-19 and virtual learning, the Safe Routes to School program is hosting Walktober, a month-long celebration of Walk, Bike & Roll to School Day 2020. Visit the Arlington Public Schools’ Safe Routes to School website below for more details.
