Allow us to reintroduce ourselves!

Two children holding signs for walk to school day.

Walk to School Day will now be known as Walk & Roll to School Day and Bike to School Day will now be known as Bike & Roll to School Day. The events have new names, new logos, and new resources to help with planning and promotion, but the goals of the events remain the same.

“At the heart of these events is the idea that by starting with children and the trip to school communities become safe places for everyone to make active trips, whether that means walking, biking or rolling,” said Nancy Pullen-Seufert, Director, National Center for Safe Routes to School—the coordinating agency of Walk & Roll and Bike & Roll to School Days. “Our new event names better reflect our longstanding goal of promoting safe, accessible spaces for all active trips.”

Read the full announcement about our relaunch and learn about the resources we’ve added to our website to help you plan more fun, impactful events.

We hope you’ll join us at the next event – Bike & Roll to School Day, which will be held on May 4, 2022. Registration opens March 8!

Re-envisioning School Streets

Cities and schools working together can support safe walking and rolling for students along with other benefits by closing or limiting motor vehicle access on a street adjacent to a school.

In Re-envisioning School Streets: Creating More Space for Children and Families, five case examples demonstrate how schools and cities have made temporary and permanent changes to support active travel.
