Active Routes to School (ARTS)

Active Routes to School is a North Carolina Safe Routes to School Project supported by a partnership between the NC Department of Transportation and the NC Division of Public Health.  The Active Routes to School Project creates opportunities for youth to walk and bike to or at school.  The goal of the project is to increase the number of elementary and middle school students who safely walk and bike to school.

Ten Active Routes to School Regional Project Coordinators work across the state.  The Jackson County Department of Public Health houses the Project Coordinator who serves the counties in Western North Carolina—Cherokee, Clay, Macon, Graham, Swain, Jackson, Haywood, and Transylvania counties.
