Thousands of elementary and middle school students all over the Commonwealth walked and rode their bikes to school in celebration of the annual Massachusetts Walk, Bike, and Roll to School Day on May 2nd.

This is the 9th consecutive year for the event, an initiative of the Massachusetts Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program, sponsored by MassDOT with funds from the Federal Highway Administration. SRTS works with public elementary and middle schools all over the state to encourage students to walk or bike to school by promoting the many health and environmental benefits of these activities, while at the same time educating students on how to be safe.

As in past years, hundreds of schools throughout the state participated in Massachusetts Walk, Bike, and Roll to School Day. This is in line with the growth of the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program, which has seen a huge increase in participation to over 400 schools walking today!
