Safe Routes to School – Encouragement

The Santa Fe Safe Routes to School team is excited to work with your school to set up “walking school busses,” “bike trains,” and other ways to promote regularly walking or bicycling to school.

Some of the most successful promotions start with participating in International Walk to School Day in October, and National Bike to School Day in May.  Schools may arrange a walk-to-school or bike-to-school procession of students and families from a popular nearby site, such as a park, or simply encourage students to arrive on foot or by bike.
