Take the Survey

Safe Routes Start at Home

More families are biking, hiking, and taking neighborhood strolls for exercise and time outdoors. When students eventually return to campuses, families can continue those healthy, active habits by walking or biking to school.

Review the fundamentals of traffic safety with your kids, then join them in practicing walking or biking the safest route to school. If you live too far from campus to walk, take the bus or drive part way and walk the rest. Take screen time breaks to enjoy fun walk & roll challenges and activities and get the whole family moving.

Transit Welcomes Riders Back

Transit agencies across the Bay Area have joined forces to create the Healthy Transit Plan. Recognizing that riders might have concerns about returning to transit, the plan outlines health and safety standards to ensure the well-being of passengers and staff aboard buses and trains during COVID-19.

County Connection, Tri Delta Transit, WestCAT, AC Transit, San Francisco Bay Ferry, and BART have all introduced measures including touchless fare payment, frequent cleaning, face mask requirements, and physical distancing. In turn, passengers can do their part by wearing masks, washing their hands frequently, and allowing adequate space between their fellow passengers.
