Walking and Wheeling to School

Active school travel is any form of human-powered travel such as walking, cycling, in-line skating, using a wheelchair, riding a skateboard, cross-country skiing, canoeing and kayaking!

On these pages we’re focused on walking and wheeling activities.To inspire you we have included an example of spring active travel events organized by schools in Toronto. All of these schools are creating school travel plans and these events are part of their actions to educate and encourage families to choose active travel more often.
