Applicants are allowed to submit without the necessary signatures. VDOT will evaluate the applications with the assumption that signatures will be obtained.

May 6 - Bike to School Day 2020 has been cancelled
Following the guidance of Governor Ralph Northam and the National Center for Safe Routes to School, Virginia will not celebrate Bike to School Day (BTSD) this year. While biking as a large group is unsafe, we encourage individual families to walk and bike as possible. See information on our Bike to School Day page for walking and bicycling while staying healthy and safe during this time.
The SRTS Calendar discusses the importance of working with your school and school division to get SRTS events on the official calendar so that students, parents, and schools can look forward to and prepare for Safe Routes events. This resource also includes a customizable academic calendar that shows the important upcoming SRTS dates and can be used in the classroom or to help plan for SRTS events.
Stay informed about the SRTS developments in Virginia with the VDOT SRTS Newsletter. Every newsletter includes a calendar of upcoming events and features articles about SRTS grant opportunities and SRTS program implementation.
