Eldorado K-8 School in Superior, CO has more than 1,000 students, and more than 950 of them living within two miles of the school. The number of students living in close proximity to school creates the potential for a
large number of them to walk and bicycle to school.
The area around the school already has many important infrastructure components, such as sidewalks and street signs, but many of the parents perceive the area as dangerous for their children to walk or bicycle to school, orthe parents are accustomed to driving their children.
To make parents comfortable with their children walking and bicycling, the SRTS coordinator works to create a pedestrian and bicycle-friendly community for all of its members.
