Walking School Bus
What is it?
The walking school bus is a group of children and/or adults who walk to school together.
How does it work?
Walking school buses vary in level of formality and structure. The following are examples of walking school buses:
Families in a neighbourhood agree to walk to school together, perhaps with parents taking turns. This is a similar arrangement to a “carpool”.
Trained student volunteers (or parents/adults) lead students on a planned route that has designated “bus stops”. This model is running successfully in schools throughout Waterloo region. For more information click here.
