The Walking School Bus Program

What is The Walking School Bus?

The Walking School Bus is a supervised group of students who walk to school together from a meeting spot. Students earn prizes, make friends, and get to know their neighborhood. Walking together makes the trip to school significantly safer, easier, and more fun. Parents can join the walk, or drop their student off with the Walking School Bus volunteer, making this a convenient option for working families.
