Travel Tallies

Winter 2019/2020

Student Hand Tallies are conducted by teachers in the morning during attendance over the course of three consecutive days (a Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday), where teachers ask students how they got to school that morning and how they plan to return home from school. Mode choices include walking, biking, school bus, family vehicle, carpool, transit, and other. “Other” typically includes skateboards, scooters, and other modes of transportation that do not fall under existing categories.

Parent Surveys

Winter 2019/2020

Parent Surveys were distributed to parents via printed paper surveys or an online link. Surveys were provided in English, Spanish, and Russian depending on each school’s language needs. The purpose of Parent Surveys is to understand family travel patterns to and from school as well as barriers and challenges to walking and biking to school.

ABout the SRTS Plan

This SRTS Plan outlines a comprehensive vision for improving walking and bicycling at Rancho Cordova Schools, along with an implementation strategy to help the City realize this vision by pursuing individual projects or coordinating with complementary efforts. This Plan also helps the City meet goals, policies, and actions identified in its General Plan, as well as its Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plans.
