The Walking Bus Website

The walking bus is the latest safe, fun and healthy way to travel to and from school. Each walking bus had an adult 'driver' at the front and and an adult 'conductor' bringing up the rear. The children walk to school in a group along a set route picking up additional 'passengers' at specific 'bus-stops' along the way.

Activity Ideas: Walk to School Day, Week, Year-round

Walk to School - Some events begin with students walking together in a "walking school bus" group with parents, celebrities and dignitaries leading the way. Other activities include safety fairs, bike rodeos, poster contests, and meetings for parents. In some communities events are designed so families can complete walkability checklists along their usual route, permitting parents to teach safety skills to children.
