Our Ride & Stride Schools
We work closely with schools to understand specific barriers to active travel in their local area and deliver a tailored suite of initiatives to encourage more walking and riding trips to and from the school gates. Find out more about each of our Ride & Stride schools here:

Ride & Stride initiatives
For a short period during drop off and pick up times we open the street outside the school gates to walking, riding, scooting and play without car traffic, creating safe and healthy streets for families to arrive safely and sustainably. Families that need to drive are able to park a little further away and walk the rest of the journey, reducing congestion and improving air quality and road safety outside our local schools.

Free e-cargo bike loans
For families that live too far to walk or ride, we offer a number of free e-cargo bike loans so they can switch the car for a faster, healthier school run alternative. If they love the bike, they can then choose to continue after the trial on a low cost, weekly subscription.
Tag On technology
Using bluetooth tokens, kids ‘tag on’ at kiosks each morning selecting how they travelled to school that day, earning points for their house and points for travelling actively, and importantly allowing parents to receive an instant email notification that their child has arrived safely the moment their child tags on.
From cycle training for children, safe routes to school mapping and road safety incursions, we work with schools to deliver a range of other programs supporting families to get to school safely and sustainably.
