Transportation Alternatives | Walk and Bike to School

Elementary students and parents walk and bike to school

The Shawnee Mission School District encourages active transportation alternatives for students and families wishing to bike or walk to school. The City of Roeland Park, BikeWalkKC and Johnson County Department of Health & Environment collaborated with Roesland Elementary and the school district to stage a Walk, Roll & Stroll Day.

The resulting Roesland Elementary Safe Routes to School Case Study & Checklist includes a list of considerations and a checklist for those school communities wishing to encourage walking and biking to school.
