A Walking School Bus (WSB) functions like a regular bus, except that children walk with a leader along a set route with scheduled stops. Starting a WSB at a school gives parents the assurance that kids will arrive to school safety, under adult supervision. It also provides kids the opportunity to enjoy regular morning activity.
A WSB can be as informal as neighborhood parents taking turns walking each other’s kids to/from school. It can also be launched as a school-wide program, with multiple routes and trained leaders. The below resources are designed to get interested individuals started. For further assistance, contact SRTS Tucson staff.
