The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) Student Neighborhood Access Program (SNAP) is a fun and comprehensive program for walking and biking safely to school that engages and educates students, parents, school administrators, crossing guards and communities.

As part of the federal Safe Routes to Schools program administered by UDOT, SNAP's first priority is student safety, with the goal to help make the roads around schools safer.

Under Utah law, all elementary, middle and junior high schools are required to create and distribute a SNAP Plan, which shows the safest routes to school. SNAP provides free resources to assist schools in creating and distributing their SNAP Plan to students and parents, and it works to:

• Increase the safety and health of students

• Decrease traffic congestion around schools
