The school travel planning process brings together members of the school community – parents, teachers, staff, students, etc – along with external stakeholders to identify barriers to active travel while working together to implement solutions. Participating in this facilitated, collaborative process helps schools identify opportunities to encourage and support active trips to school, and solutions to traffic safety concerns. This process includes the production of a Best Routes to School Map, and a document summarising Active Transportation barriers and opportunities. The surveys and walkabouts also help Engineering staff develop improved active routes to school. The program began in 2015 and is currently in its third year.
2017-2018 Program Currently underway! The 6 participating schools are
Campus View Elementary School

Let’s keep our kids healthy and get them to and from school safely. That’s the goal of Safe Routes to School.
