The San Mateo County Safe Routes to School Program is a partnership between the City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG) and the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE). C/CAG is the funding agency and program administrator. C/CAG contracts with SMCOE to serve as the lead agency managing the day-to-day operations and project implementation activities.
The overall program goal includes encouraging and enabling school children to walk, bicycle, carpool, and utilize transit as means of getting to school. To facilitate achievement of this goal, schools are supported with the implementation of projects and activities that decrease traffic congestion around school sites, reduce school-related travel emissions, and improve the health, well-being, and safety of student participants. Specific support to participants includes a grant award program, facilitation, professional development, outreach, and countywide event coordination.
