Increasing the number of students walking, cycling, skating or scooting to school has a range of benefits for the whole school community, including:

  • reducing traffic congestion around schools, leading to quieter and safer streets
  • improving health and fitness
  • increasing independence and encouraging social interaction
  • connecting the school with the local community.

We offer a range of incentives and programs to encourage students to walk or ride their bike to school, including:

We can also assist with advice and grant possibilities around bike parking.
