Join the hundreds of kids in San Carlos who have ditched their family cars for fun, healthy, active transportation to and from school: walking, biking, scootering, and skateboarding! Here in San Carlos, our Safe Routes To School (SRTS) program has dramatically shifted behavior in the past three years at the schools located in the “flats” of San Carlos. Whereas we once had only a dozen cyclists and a handful of skateboards and scooters making their way to Central Middle School, now we have a daily average of 60% using active transportation for Central, Arroyo, and White Oaks schools. Even on the wettest days this year, there were dozens of bikes parked in racks.
In addition to those active modes of transportation, our local SamTrans public bus route now provides more routes than ever. See this link for the updated routes and timetables: http://www.scsdk8.org/wp-content/uploads/SamTrans-Bus-Timetables.pdf
