Schools


School environments are busy during the morning and afternoon peak periods. The best way to reduce congestion and increase safety in these environments is to encourage more children to use active travel, which includes walking, riding or public transport.

Transport Canberra and City Services’ (TCCS) Schools Program works with stakeholders to deliver active travel initiatives and provides traffic management support to schools. The Schools Program works across government to provide an efficient and effective point of contact for school principals, parents and local residents.

The Schools Program focuses on initiatives that make active travel a safer, more accessible and easier form of transport for children and their parents.
