How to Get Started

There are plenty of helpful resources that will help you get this initiative rolling in your neighbourhood.

Browse our Active School Travel Activity Calendar for some inspiration on how to make walking and wheeling to school or the bus stop fun all year round! Various active activities and events (webinars, worldwide active initiatives, conferences, etc.) are also posted in our calendar throughout the year.

Our Walk and Roll Travel Time Map allows students, parents, and schools to find their school on a map and estimate how long it would take for them to walk or bike to school! You’d be surprised as to how close you are to your destination.

The Active Travel Trip Counter App allows students, parents, and school administrators, to submit the distance students actively travel to and from school. This information is then displayed in a variety of ways, including by school and board comparisons.

Learn how to organize a Community Walkabout in your neighbourhood, and discover what a Kilometre Club is and why your school should have one!
