Primary & Secondary - School Cycle Bus


Starting a Cycle Bus in your Area!

A Cycle Bus is a group of children cycling to school supported and marshalled by adults. The group moves on a set route picking children up at different locations at set times and dropping them off at school. There are different approaches to starting a Cycle Bus, here are a few:

  • Parents get together and cycle with their children to school as a group
  • Community groups or individuals with parents cycle the children to school
  • A collaboration with the school(s), parents, community groups or individuals cycle the children to school
  • All different approaches need a route and marshals to help the Cycle Bus travel safely
