Walking buses

walking-bus

Walking Buses have been successfully operating in Staffordshire schools since 1999.  The scheme promotes walking to school and a healthy, active lifestyle whilst caring for the local environment at the same time.

Adult volunteers, using a rota system, walk the children to school on a designated bus route, picking up passengers at various bus stops along the way.
All training, risk assessments and resources, including high visibility clothing, are provided free of charge.  Volunteers would need to be DBS checked.  The scheme is fully supported by the Active School Travel Advisors who will assist in all aspects of setting up and maintaining the Walking Bus at your school. 

If your school would like to set up a Walking Bus, or requires further information as to how they operate, please contact the Active School Travel Team - walking.bus@staffordshire.gov.uk
