Active and Safe Routes to School - Calgary
Schools are hubs of community, and quality school travel planning initiatives can contribute to student health and learning outcomes, improve safety, and reduce traffic congestion and harmful emissions that contribute to poorer air quality in school zones at drop off and pick up times. Thanks to funding from the Alberta Traffic Safety Fund and the City of Calgary, Phase I of this project provided training and mentoring support to local Calgary facilitators to build capacity to implement the school travel planning process.
Phase II began in October 2019, made possible through funding from the City of Calgary. Contracted by Ever Active Schools, the facilitators are in the process of implementing School Travel Planning projects in 30 Calgary schools over a three year period.
