Find out how parents and students are using walk audits and a phone app to document the best routes to school in Santa Clarita, Ca. Stanford University’s study shows that the SRTS program was more successful when paired with the citizen science-based Our Voice Program and phone app, which features photos and reviews of routes in school neighborhoods. Over the course of the school year, the research team found that rates of walking and biking to school at the school with both Our Voice and the Safe Routes to Schools Program increased by 25 percent, whereas the school with the Safe Routes to School program alone did not see much of a change.
