School travel plan

The On the Move in the Community team leverages the expertise of Vélo Québec and the input of key community stakeholders to develop school travel plans at the elementary level. The commuting habits and realities of local families are assessed through a parent survey, interviews and a community walkabout.

Armed with this knowledge, the team then draws up a list of the various hurdles to walking and cycling and suggests corrective action to make school routes safer and more accessible. The resulting school travel plan recommendations are directed at municipal elected officials, urban planning professionals, schools, school boards and police departments. A report containing a proposal for the location of bicycle stands, tailored to the individual needs of each school, is also included in the plan.
