Input Opportunities

Dallas Department of Transportation- School Traffic Safety Guide

The Department of Transportation has undertaken an update to the 1980 School Safety Manual and is seeking input on the draft School Traffic Safety Guide (2021). The guide is intended to serve as a comprehensive reference on school transportation-related policies, standards, procedures, and practices under the purview of the City of Dallas. 

Various City departments that are involved in the establishment and maintenance of transportation safety of school children provided input over the course of the guide's development. Now, the City is seeking to engage the public, including school districts and school operators, school administrators and staff, engineers and other professionals involved in locating, designing, and operating school sites, as well as parents/guardians and residents living in close proximity to schools.

The Department of Transportation is accepting feedback through October 1st. Final revisions to the guide will be made before it is presented to City Council for adoption in Fall 2021.

View a draft of the School Traffic Safety Guide here.
