The North Carolina Division of Public Health (Community and Clinical Connections for Prevention and Health Branch) and the North Carolina Department of Transportation are partnering to offer a new project: Active Routes to School (ARTS). The goal of the project is to increase the number of North Carolinians that meet the physical activity recommendations by increasing the number of elementary and middle school students who walk and bike to school.
