Active and Safe Routes to School is a set of programs and services coordinated by Green Action Centre to reverse the trend of driving children to school.

Through special events, school travel planning, presentationsresources, data collection, and our innovative cycling education program, we work with schools to reduce barriers to using active and sustainable school travel.

    The result?

    • Healthier, happier students
    • Cleaner air
    • Calmer streets
    • Better learning
    • More cohesive communities
    • Lower CO2 emissions

    Ready to Act?

    Every school community has different needs and will promote active school travel in different ways. Actions in support of Active School Travel can be considered as part of the “5 Es of School Travel Planning”:  Education, Encouragement, Engineering, Enforcement, and Evaluation.
