We envision a province where all children can walk and bike to school on safe routes.
The Active and Safe Routes to School (ASRTS) program has been working in Manitoba for over a decade to encourage Active School Travel through presentations, events, and programming. Walking and cycling as a means of transportation are on the decline in Canada, as part of a decades-long international trend toward more sedentary lifestyles and increased dependence on vehicles. We’re here to change that!
