Wanted active school travellers

 

 

 

Nominate your primary school for Council’s 2022 Active School Travel program
 
Create a healthy and active school community while improving kids’ road safety skills by applying for the 2022 Active School Travel program today!  The Active School Travel (AST) is Brisbane City Council’s free, three-year program aiming to improve road safety and create active communities.
 
Help make your school a safer place and develop street-smart kids by encouraging families to swap the car for: 
• walking
• scootering
• cycling
• public transport
• car pooling.
 
Primary schools joining the Active School Travel program will receive a comprehensive range of free resources and incursions to enable families to leave the car at home and actively travel to and from school.
 
Since its launch in 2004, the program has helped to swap up to 35% of single-family car trips to and from participating schools for an active and healthy transport alternative.
 
Principals are encouraged to apply online now for the 2022 intake. Places are limited and nominations will close on Friday 17 September.  Visit Council’s website (www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/activeschooltravel) or call Council’s Contact Centre on 3403 8888 for more information.
