Schools

"Mid 1980s: Two-thirds of primary school students and three-quarters of secondary school students walked, cycled or used public transport to get to school."

Today: This has dropped to one third of primary school students and less than half of secondary school students." Department for Planning and Infrastructure, 2008.

There a number of TravelSmart initiatives your class or school can become involved in. A TravelSmart School realises the best way to relieve congestion, increase safety and keep kids fit is by encouraging students to use active transport for their trips to and from school.

One of the most popular initiatives for schools is the Walking School Bus. A Walking School Bus is a group of students walking to school together with parent volunteers, picking up 'passengers' along the way. The Walking School Bus is a great way for children to get active, helps to develop road safety skills and reduced vehicle traffic at school times.

The City's TravelSmart Officer can assist in starting a Walking School Bus at your school.
