Active Streets is an extension of Ride or Walk to School to make the environment around schools safer to ride, walk, scooter or skate to and from school.

Cycling, walking, scooting or skating are simple ways to incorporate physical activity into everyday lives and daily journeys to and from school.

School route maps, Part Way OK drop off points and pavement stencils map out easy walking routes that are a short distance from participating schools.

It is also a fun way to get to and from school and can help to make the morning commute easier not having to face the congestion at the front gate.

More information about Active Streets is available on the Transport Canberra website.
