Safer Routes to School (BTA)

Volunteer for Safer Routes to Schools Programs

We are looking for volunteers who know how to have fun.

Portland’s Safer Routes to School (SR2S) program teaches biking and walking safety to elementary school children in the Portland metro area. These important lessons include community walk and bike rides that need the help of volunteers. The Safer Route program is entering its 3rd year and is building sustainable volunteer partnerships within the communities that we serve.

If your business, organization or institution would be interested in partnering with Safer Routes to help make walking and biking to school in your community the best option, please contact Gregg Lavender at the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, gregg@bta4bikes.org or 503-226-0676 x 20 (emails preferred.)

Volunteers needed each Friday from September 21st to November 2nd from 9 am- noon or from 1:00 pm- 3:30 pm (among other times).

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael

    Do you know when the city is going to update their SR2S website? Bridlemile has completed the program, but the website doesn\’t reflect the changes, routes, trails, etc.
