What is Safe Routes to School?
Safe Routes to School is a federal and state program designed to make it safe safe, convenient, and fun for children to bicycle and walk to school. 

As part of the Safe Routes to School initiative, East Bay Township is
 seeking to improve pedestrian access to area schools in the vicinity of the 3 Mile Road and Hammond intersection, while also furthering the enhancement of regional trail connectivity. The Township has contracted with Prein & Newhof to assist the Township in applying for Safe Routes to School funding. This project is supported by our partner at TART, the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, and Norte.
