Active School Travel program

Redlands Active School Travel program

The Active School Travel trial is part of our transport strategy, a core priority to improve connectivity across the city.

The free program encourages school students in the Redlands to use active and environmentally friendly ways to get to school, including by foot, bike or scooter. Active travel can be for a whole trip, or incorporated for part of the journey, for example, park 500 metres away from school and enjoy a 6-8 minute walk to the gate.

Designed to create healthy and active kids arriving to school ready to learn, the program has an added bonus of creating safer streets by reducing congestion around the school gate.

Schools participating in the trial will be supported by an Active School Travel officer, localised active travel maps, bike and scooter skills training, and travel rewards.
