The Walk-and-Ride to School Program is a voluntary travel behaviour change program that aims to reduce congestion by encouraging primary school children and their parents/carers to walk, cycle, scoot, skateboard, catch the bus or carpool to school.
Even replacing one car trip a week with a sustainable transport mode can make a difference!
The program is currently being implemented at Tewantin State School, Noosaville State School and Sunshine Beach State School.
For full details please refer to the Walk and Ride to School factsheet.
Walking, Wheeling Wednesday
It's a date, every Wednesday why not park the car 500m-1km away from school and walk, ride a bike or hop on a scooter for the last part of the journey. It reduces the number of cars around the school, and it's a fun and healthy way to start the day.
