Walking School Bus

Kids walking to school

Good for kids, good for the environment

AMI has been involved with the Walking School Bus programme since 1998 and currently sponsors Walking School Buses in Auckland and Tauranga.

The Walking School Bus Programme provides children with a safe way to get to school, which

  • encourages children to get active
  • educates children about road safety
  • reduces cars on the road
  • provides volunteer parents with an opportunity to meet other parents

Thanks to the hard work of regional councils and local schools, establishing a Walking School Bus is now relatively easy but the challenge (and key to ongoing success) is retaining committed volunteers. We provide incentive packs for volunteers as part of our support for the Walking School Bus programme.
