Walk Audits and Tools

Walk audits and tools for gathering information about the built environment can help support active travel, describe the experience for all road users, and provide a way for communities and decision makers to work together to identify solutions to improve safety. Head to our Walk Audits and Tools page to find resources that could be incorporated into an event or used throughout the year to support safe active travel.


E-Bike Safety

E-bikes are growing in popularity as an option for older students to ride to school. Bike & Roll to School Day organizers at middle and high schools may be seeing more and more e-bikes during events or throughout the year. See our list of resources to learn more about safety recommendations for e-bike riders.
