The walking bus is the latest safe, fun and healthy way to travel to and from school.
Hazel Grove on the launch day of their two walking busesEach walking bus had an adult 'driver' at the front and and an adult 'conductor' bringing up the rear. The children walk to school in a group along a set route picking up additional 'passengers' at specific 'bus-stops' along the way.
The bus runs rain or shine and everyone wears a reflective jacket. Along the way children can chat to their friends, learn valuable road safety skills and gain some independence.
All walking buses are different!. They vary to suit the needs of the children and their parents.
A walking bus at your school could be set up to match the availability of the volunteers.
