The Walking BusWalking Buses

What are they?

A Walking Bus encourages children to walk to and from school safety, joining or leaving at designated 'bus stops', with the help of adult volunteers. It can enable parents to leave their car at home which will ease congestion around the school and give health and exercise benefits to those involved.

Walking Buses are organised and supported by the school; its pupils, parents, teachers and governors. Volunteers can be trained by Worcestershire County Council officers who can also Risk Assess the route(s).

How it Works

It may be possible to get sponsorship for hi-viz vests and some publicity material from a local business, alternatively, please visit the co-operative walking bus website.
