Why encourage walking and biking?
A May 2009 survey of student travel behavior in the San Ramon Valley showed that in some schools, as few as 9.4% of elementary school students living within 1/4 mile of school actually walked or biked to school. Studies have shown that walking or bicycling to school can create an improved quality of life for the community, students, and parents alike. Walking and bicycling to school fosters a healthy lifestyle, reduces traffic congestion, and reduces air pollution around schools.
