Active Travel for Schools

Active travel is one of the easiest and most time efficient ways to ensure children receive the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day.

Whether it involves walking, riding a bike, scooter or skateboard, catching public transport, or even a combination of each, active travel is a fun, safe and healthy way to travel to and from school.

Transport Canberra and City Services’ Schools Program works with a number of stakeholders to deliver active travel support to schools. This includes active travel initiatives and coordination of infrastructure projects.

The Schools Program helps to make active travel a safer, more accessible and easier form of transport for children and parents around schools.
