Did You Know?

Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Schools Cut Back on Transportation

According to a report by the American Association of School Administrators, 23 percent of school districts are cutting back on school bus routes and availability due to funding shortfalls. Rather than not offering any transportation services, Active Trans has a better solution. Implement Safe Routes to School and other programs that encourage walking and rolling to school.

Active Trans has multiple programs for elementary schools including one-time presentations, mini-grants for Walk and Roll to School Day events, curriculum and fun challenge programs. Give us a call at 312.427.3325 for help starting a program at your school.
