Be Active Safe Routes


In Lawrence and Douglas County, the Be Active Safe Routes program is a comprehensive approach to make neighborhoods safe and accessible for EVERYONE. In addition to improving safety, Be Active Safe Routes benefits communities by reducing traffic congestion and air pollution, increasing the opportunity to be physically active and building community cohesion.

Be Active Safe Routes is possible because of many partnerships within the community all working toward one common goal: safe routes for all.
