Ride or Walk to School
The Ride or Walk to School initiative aims to increase walking, cycling and use of public transport among school students in the ACT.
Launched in September 2012, the initiative was developed by ACT Health in collaboration with key stakeholders.
The Physical Activity Foundation now runs the Ride or Walk to School program in ACT primary schools.
Participating schools receive bikes, helmets, maintenance support, personal safety sessions, road safety education, BMX skills development workshops and a range of other activities as part of the initiative.
