Communities and schools are walking and biking as the first step to change community culture and to create options for getting around that are more inviting for everyone, both young and old. Here’s why:
It’s Fun! Walking and bicycling bring a sense of joy and independence.
Healthier Habits The trip to school is a chance for children (and adults!) to get the exercise they need.
Cleaner Environment Replacing car trips to school with walking or bicycling can reduce congestion and air-polluting emissions.
Promoting Safety Building sidewalks, providing education programs and adding traffic calming measures are some of the ways to improve safety.
Community Benefits Encouraging walking and bicycling to school can help build support for infrastructure improvements, boost sense of community, reduce traffic congestion, and improve neighborhood connections.
It's the Fall Walk to School Day, Wednesday October 5, 2016. 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.
