Walking School Buses are a one of the most effective SRTS tools around. A Walking School Bus is like a carpool without a car. Instead of being driven, a group of students walks to school together supervised by adults such as parents, grandparents, and community members.  Some Walking School Buses run once a week. Others might run every day.

Typically there is a starting “bus stop” where walkers meet on a designated time and day. Once traveling on their route to school, the Walking Bus may stop and pick up other students who live along the way.
