We envision a province where all kids 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 engage communities, and implement meaningful programs to increase children’s mobility. We are a leader in School Travel Planning in Manitoba, and our team works across the Province to deliver quality presentations and programming as well; including Air Quality Health presentations, our new Bicycle Education Skills Training (BEST) program and our annual events: International Walk to School Month (October), Bike to School Month (May), and Clean Air Day (June).
