Placing safety and improvement of public health above all, the SRTS program works to educate the community by helping to counteract the upward trend of obesity in the United States while decreasing traffic congestion around schools.

The presentation of the SRTS program will look a little different once implemented in Nashville, TN. We will utilize community mapping with Mappler Technology (mobile and web-based civic engagement tool) to facilitate the program; members of the community will venture outside in order to document bikeability, walkability, the conditions of roads, and the presence, or lack thereof, of crosswalks and sidewalks near and around public schools. Community mapping will add an interactive and educative element to the program. It will foster a sense of community amongst Nashvillians as they work towards a common goal: the goal of the SRTS program.
