Walking Bus

The Walking Bus is an alternative way for children and parents to travel to and from school in Cardiff. Staffed by trained parent volunteers, it provides children with regular exercise and the opportunity to develop vital road safety skills as they walk.

Walking is fun, healthy and provides important daily exercise. By supporting the Walking Bus you can help reduce traffic, noise, congestion and pollution near schools. If you are a parent, teacher or governor and would like more information about how to start a Walking Bus please contact a member of the Road Safety Team.

The Walking Bus scheme is currently operating at a number of primary schools in Cardiff, including Christ the King and Ysgol Pwll Coch.

Record-Breaking Walking Bus event

Since 2004 a number of schools in Cardiff have participated in the Record-Breaking Walking Bus event.

The main aim of this event is to encourage schools to promote the importance of road safety, highlights to drivers the need to drive slowly near schools, encourage more walking to school and promote the setting up of volunteer-led Walking Buses.

If you would like more information about setting up a Walking Bus at your school, please contact the Safer Routes to School Officer at the Road Safety Centre.
