Walk and Bus Safety

Safe Walking/Biking Routes 

UDOT’s Student Neighborhood Access Program (SNAP)™ provides tools and resources to assist schools in the planning, education and encouragement of students walking and biking safely to school. Schools create plans that detail the safest walking and biking routes within a one-mile radius of the school. By helping administrators create a plan and provide a map of the safest walking and biking routes to parents and students, SNAP works to encourage the safety and health benefits of walking, as well as decrease air pollution and traffic congestion around schools. SNAP works in partnership with the national Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program, which also provides funding for projects that improve student walking and biking access around schools as well as encourage and educate students to perform this healthy activity safely.

Columbia Elementary safe walking route (shown below) has been approved by the local School Community Council,  P.T.A., and SNAP.  These are the approved safest routes for your child to walk/bike to school. (Double click to enlarge map)
