All sixth-graders taking PE will be able to participate in the SRTS "Bike PE" curriculum, which teaches students how to bicycle safely and courteously on Fort Collins streets and multi-use trails.

10 Small Steps to Reducing Transportation Costs

  • Check your tires. Keeping your tires inflated properly can improve gas mileage by more than 3%.
  • Visit the Fort Collins Bike Library when you have guests in town to borrow bikes for a day or month.
  • Visit Smart Trips ( to join a carpool or share a ride to a specific event such as a Nuggets game.
  • Use cruise control. Each 5 mph over 60 mph is like paying an additional 10 cents per gallon for gas.
  • Switch your car engine so that you can use biodiesel; kits are available on-line.
  • Buy a hybrid vehicle.
  • Find your zen; aggressive driving can lower your gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds and by 5% around town.
  • Avoid idling at lights, when picking up your children or waiting for the train. Turn your engine off after 30 seconds of waiting.
  • Find a tire dealer or service station that put old tires to new uses: floor mats, adhesives, gaskets, shoe soles, and more.
  • Use Transfort’s new clean compressed natural gas buses.
