More about Hillsboro’s SRTS Program
The SRTS Program works with the Hillsboro School District to create safe, convenient, and fun ways for youth to walk and roll (bike, scooter, skateboard, or ride the bus) to and from school in our community.

The benefits of walking and rolling to school include:

  • Increased physical activity which has been linked to improved health and increased learning, memory, and ability to stay on task
  • Improved air quality around schools
  • Reduced vehicle congestion
