Safe Routes to School makes walking and bicycling to school more fun, convenient, and safe for families.

Multnomah County partners with the cities and schools of East Multnomah County to support Safe Routes to School activities for youth.

Back to School 2022

We are excited that schools are back in session!

We are looking forward to a busy year of events and lessons, and have started reaching out to schools for fall Walk and Roll events.

And don't forget to share these safety videos with your family - in Arabic, Chinese, English, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.


Multnomah County can support schools in East Multnomah County who provide Safe Routes to School programming activities such as: 

  • Encouragement events before, during, or after school to promote walking and bicycling

  • Bicycle and pedestrian safety curriculum for schools, including training for school staff
