California State-legislated Safe Routes To School Program
Established in 1999, the State Safe Routes to School (SR2S) program came into effect from the passage and signing of Assembly Bill 1475 (AB 1475). In 2001, Senate Bill 10 (SB 10) was enacted which extended the program for three additional years. In 2004, SB 1087 was enacted to extend the program three more years.
A new bill, AB 57, was introduced in December 2006 to extend the program until January 1, 2013.Six (6) cycles of project solicitation for the State SR2S program have been completed. Click the link below to view the results.
