17 Jul Safe Routes to School Prioritization Study (Sonoma County Bike Coalition)
As part of SCTA’s Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program, their subconsultant, the SCBC, contracted with W-Trans to analyze the potential to increase walking and biking to 100 elementary and middle schools within Sonoma County. Using GIS, collision history for all modes were evaluated within defined distances from the campuses. Using traffic volume, speed data and lane capacity information from the County traffic model, bicycle and pedestrian level of stress was calculated for arterial and collector routes to the schools. The results were then scored to provide a prioritization list.
