Ongoing Activities

Students are excited about the walking school bus at the Morton Way Public School in Brampton, Ontario.

Students prepare to ride to BB Harris Elementary in Duluth, GA.

Ongoing walking and bicycling activities are defined here as activities that are held daily, weekly or several times per month throughout the school year. Walking school buses, bicycle trains, park and walk activities and routine on-campus walks all are ongoing encouragement activities. When planning, some schools choose more than one encouragement activity and include opportunities for children that cannot walk or bicycle the route to school from their home. See the end of this section for examples of how two schools created comprehensive, inclusive encouragement campaigns.
