There are many reasons to walk or bike to school, and plenty of resources to help make your trip fun, easy and safe!
The Active & Safe Routes to School (ASRtS) program aims to encourage and support students and families to travel actively and safely to and from school. Many parents and children already enjoy walking or cycling to and from school. We hope you will choose to join them!
