The Ohio Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program is funded by the Federal Highway Administration and administered by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT). The program supports projects and programs that enable and encourage walking and bicycling to and from school. After completing a School Travel Plan, communities are asked to fill out an application to be eligible for funding consideration.

​The emphasis of ODOT's research program is on investigating issues facing Ohio's transportation system. A strategic approach is used to develop the research program. This helps to ensure that: (1) both long- and short-term goals are identified; (2) research is focused on ODOT's needs; (3) research is performed as near as possible to the time that a solution is needed; and (4) major projects, or portions thereof, are sequenced in a logical manner.

​The STIP begins as a compilation of regional Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) that are generally adopted every two years by Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), includes rural areas where ODOT is responsible for programming federally funded projects, and evolves into a comprehensive list of all highway and transit projects that propose to use Federal funds. ODOT's STIP is updated biannually
