Walking Bus

A Walking Bus is a group of children walking to school who are chaperoned by two or more adults. Just like a bus, there is a route with pick up points (bus stops) and a walking bus runs on a timetable delivering the children right to the school playground.  It is as easy as that!

Australia gave us the Walking Bus concept in 1992.  Raising awareness in pedestrian skills, safer routes to schools, helping the environment by reducing traffic and congestion.  Walking Buses in Kent are hugely successful highlighting the benefits of walking for children and parents alike..  Much of the success is due to the parental support in schools that keep the buses going year after year
