Walking School Bus Coordinators Guide 2023 cover [PDF, 363 KB]

Updated 2023

A walking school bus involves students and adult supervisors walking in a group to school. 

Each ‘bus’ walks along a set route with at least one adult ‘driver’ picking up children at designated ‘bus stops’ and walking them to and from school. 

This guide provides schools with a step-by-step process to establish walking school bus routes with their community.
