What IS a Walking School Bus?

A walking school bus is a group of children walking to school with one or more adults. That may sound simple, and that is part of the appeal. It can be as informal as two families taking turns walking their children to school or as structured as a planned route with meeting points, a timetable and a schedule of trained volunteers.

Walking together to make the community better!

WHY use a walking school bus?

Today, fewer children are walking and bicycling to school, and more children are at risk of becoming overweight and obese than children 30 years ago (Koplan, Liverman, & Kraak, 2005; U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, n.d.).

To be fit, we have to teach our children to lead active lifestyles. Increased and regular physical activity allows a healthy weight to be established and maintained.

Encouraging a healthy lifestyle requires creative solutions that are safe and fun. Implementing a walking school bus can be both. The focus is:
• Fitness
• Safety
• Fun
• Focus

WHO should be included?

You! A walking school bus works best with dedicated volunteers from the community it serves. This could include:
• Parents
• Older siblings
• Grandparents
• Retired community members
• Teachers/school staff
