Walking School Bus

    The Walking School Bus is a supervised group of students who walk to school together from a meeting spot. Students begin the day with healthy physical activity, making friends, and getting to know their neighborhood. Walking together makes the trip to school significantly safer, easier, and more fun. Parents can join the walk or drop their student off with the Walking School Bus volunteer, making this a convenient option for working families.


    Plan a Walking School Bus!

    The Walking School Bus program is made possible through the work of our amazing volunteers. Leading a Walking School Bus is a great way to support your school community and Safe Routes to School can help you get started!
