OPS Walking School Bus
WHAT IS A WALKING SCHOOL BUS?
It’s an organised group of children who walk to and from school, along a designated route, under the supervision of adult volunteers. Children are ‘picked up’ and ‘dropped off’ at specific Walking School Bus (WSB) ‘bus stops’.
WSBs reduce the number of cars on the road, making our environment safer and cleaner, and they provide exercise for kids in a fun and social way. In Auckland alone, there are more than 350 active WSBs, with over 4,000 children walking to school.
WSBs are operated by volunteer parents and caregivers, supported by the school and Auckland Transport. WSBs can only operate if there is parent support, as an adult to child ratio of at least 1:8 must be maintained at all times.
You can find out more in the Walking School Bus page of our OPS website or on the Auckland Transport Website
