Case Study: Bowling Green, Kentucky

Dishman-McGinnis Elementary School, as well as four other elementary schools in Bowling Green, KY, has been implementing a SRTS program since 2006. Centrally located within the suburban community, many students already walked or bicycled to school. Therefore, the activities of the SRTS program focused on encouraging those children who already walked or bicycled to school to continue doing so, educating those children within walking distance from school but do not walk or bicycle on how much fun the activity can be and engineering the environment to make it safer for the children to walk.
