There’s a huge list of ways to encourage people to walk to school. Here are just a few:

  • Walking buses – this is just like a normal bus to school, but everyone walks.
  • Bike parking – a shelter, bike racks, or bike lockers.
  • Walking distance maps – these are maps that show how far things are in minutes of walking instead of miles or meters.
  • Park and strides – this is when you get dropped off away from school and have to walk the last bit.
