Active School Transportation
Main Page Content
“Active transportation” uses human powered modes of transportation to get you from one place to another, including school. The most common forms of active transportation are walking and wheeling, which can include biking, skateboarding, rollerblading, scootering, or using mobility-assistive devices (e.g., wheelchairs).
Active transportation can be incorporated into the school day in the following ways:
- Walking to and from the school bus stop
- Walking or wheeling to and from school
- Walk-a-block to and from school (parents drop off child 5-10 minutes away from the school and they walk the rest of the way)
