The Closer Than You Think Map

It’s closer than you think

The Walk and Roll 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.

You can find your school by one of two ways:

  1. Select your municipality in the Drop Down Menu (either Burlington, Oakville, Milton, or Halton Hills), and select the desired school in the drop-down
  2. Input your address in the Address Search bar, and the nearest schools will be displayed in your area.

Once you find your desired school, select the “Map Select” link to see three (3) shaded areas that estimate how long i would take to walk or bike to a school. You can also select the “Schools Details” link to access additional information on a particular school.

The assumption used in determining the time required to travel the distance is as follows (NOTE – an individual’s actual speed may vary):

  • Walking: consists of a normal walking pace of about 5 km/hr
  • Cycling: consists of a normal cycling leisure pace of about 15 km/hr.

Now that you know how long it takes, go enjoy the outdoors!
