Regional Experts

SRTS Team Mapping

We all need help sometimes! Regional Experts offer advice, guidance, and technical assistance to schools implementing SRTS programs and activities. The Regional Expert program consists of Program Experts, who focus on education, encouragement, enforcement, and evaluation strategies, and Technical Experts, who focus on engineering strategies. Program Experts can answer questions by phone or email about how to get started, specific challenges related to starting a program or moving up to the next level. They provide examples of successful programs or activities and help the champion brainstorm ideas or work through a specific challenge. Technical Experts can assist schools with travel plans, walk audits, school zone signage or other engineering issues.  

Do you have experience with SRTS? Would you like to share your experiences and help others with ideas on implementing their programs or projects? We're always looking for new faces to join our Regional Experts Panel.  Contact the VTrans Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Manager to learn more about the program.
