Walking School Bus

The Walking School Bus is a great way for students to travel to school. Basically, it's a group of students who regularly walk to school together, often led by adult volunteers. A Walking School Bus provides adult supervision, safety in numbers, physical activity, a great social atmosphere and fun on the way to school! Students arrive energized and ready for the day. A Cycling School Bus is a variation with bikes.

The Ecology Action Centre can assist your group in organizing a Walking School Bus. Contact us for a meeting or presentation.
