Mobility Implications of School Crossing Guard Programs and School Walking Route Maps

This research aims to examine two specific components of walking and bicycling to school programs: 1) the formation, operation, and effectiveness of crossing guard programs and 2) the development, distribution, and usage of walking and bicycling to school walking route maps. The states of Washington and Idaho will serve as a baseline to determine if external factors such as legislative mandates drive certain policies and correspond to changes in behavior. To complete this research study, a literature review will be initially conducted and will be followed by an analysis of existing data, interviews with school principals and administrators, site assessments, and the development of a final report.
