Schools: Active Transportation

Encourage active alternatives for transportation.

Walking and bicycling promote a healthy lifestyle – they also reduce traffic and air pollution in the vicinity of schools. We encourage you to identify safe routes for children to access to and from school. This is one more way for your students to make healthy living part of their daily routine.

Here are some ways your school can encourage active alternatives for transportation:

  • Safe Routes to School – support a weekly walk and bike to school day for students
  • Evaluate the school environment and identify safe walking and biking opportunities
  • Establish and maintain a bicycle friendly infrastructure

Make your commitment to implement this policy change in your school. Download the pledge form today!
