June 3-7 is Bike to School Week! This year, the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB), in partnership with Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region (STSWR), will be participating in this opportunity to highlight the benefits of active transportation.

Cycling to and from school is a great way for students to incorporate healthy and fun activities into their day. Cycling helps to: 

  • Create a passion for fitness
  • Emphasize the environmental impact of active transportation
  • Create opportunities for community building

Exploring alternatives to vehicle transportation not only boosts well-being, it:

  • Helps reduce fossil fuel emissions 
  • Creates a safe, active transportation environment around WRDSB schools

While this is only one week of action, we hope it inspires many to choose active travel more often. We hope these efforts will have a ripple effect throughout the rest of the school year and into the future.
