Pasadena Safe Routes to School Program

Walking and bicycling to school helps reduce air pollution and traffic congestion around schools and neighborhoods. Individual schools, school districts, local governments, and regional leaders all have a role to play in making it easier and safer for children to walk and bicycle to school.

Our Program includes:

  • Walk to School Encouragement Activities and events
  • Bike repair and active opportunities at on-campus Bike/Active Classroom Hubs
  • Walking/biking school buses
  • High School Safe Routes Youth Advocate Program
  • Safe Routes to School Parent Leader Program

For Parents

Become a Parent School Bus walking Leader!

A walking school bus is a group of children walking to school with one or more adults. That may sound simple, and that is part of the appeal. It can be as informal as two families taking turns walking their children to school or as structured as a planned route with meeting points, a timetable and a schedule of trained volunteers.
