The city of Omro is a small, rural community (pop. 3,300) in northeast Wisconsin.  Omro Middle School is located on the far north side of the city, with farmland less than a mile to its north, east and west.  While 42 percent of its students live within two miles of the school, many of these students must cross one or more major barriers – including state highways and the Fox River – to walk and bike there.  As a result, the vast majority of students are eligible to be bused.

Heatherwood Elementary School in Boulder, Colo., is a small neighborhood school with 375 students, 90 percent of whom live within 2 miles of the school. Despite this close proximity and being located in the suburbs of a city known for its active lifestyle, only 10 percent of the school’s students were walking and only 1.4 percent were cycling to school in 2008. A parent survey revealed that few students were walking or cycling to school because a rural highway bisected the school’s attendance area.
