Active & Safe Routes to School

Active & Safe Routes to School

Active & Safe Routes to School is a community-based initiative that promotes the use of active transportation for the daily trip to school, addressing health, physical activity, and traffic safety issues while taking action on air pollution and climate change. The process is undertaken through the School Travel Planning model, developed specifically for Canada.

The active school travel movement is supported by a large network of Canadian organizations that believe active transportation on the trip to and from school increases health and happiness and creates daily fitness habits for life.
