Active school travel fosters vitality in our kids, our schools, and our communities

Our vision is to have more students bike, walk or roll to school. That means reversing a double-digit decline in the number of students who are getting to school under their own steam now, compared to 1986. It’s not just about lost fitness. This decline in active travel contributes to behavioural problems in the classroom, poor academic results, school-zone congestion and safety issues, and a general loss of the social glue that makes communities healthy and vibrant.

Together we can turn this trend around.
