About the Conference

The 2019 Safe Routes to School National Conference will be held at the Hilton Tampa Downtown from November 12-14, 2019. Be sure to save the date for this fabulous opportunity to join hundreds of active transportation and public health advocates and practitioners from across the country for valuable networking, sharing best practices, and exploring one of Florida’s most vibrant and active cities.

The Safe Routes to School National Partnership wishes to extend warm thanks to the presenting sponsor, Florida Department of Transportation, and the Hillsborough Metropolitan Planning Organization, who is our local host and partner for this event.

Spend two days with leaders in Safe Routes as they address today’s most pressing challenges and hot topics. You’ll go home with new strategies and techniques to share to continue the movement.
