Riverdale Elementary School Travel Planning 2011/2012

Riverdale Elementary School

Riverdale Elementary students walk and bike to school.  To increase the number of students walking and biking, Riverdale participated in School Travel Planning in the 2011-2012 school year. Since about half of the students are in the French Immersion program, they may live further from school and have a higher likelihood of being driven to school.

Riverdale Elementary is located at 14835 108A Avenue in Guildford.

School Travel Planning successes

  • Increase in percentage of students cycling to school from 1% to 4%
  • Increase in percentage of students carpooling to school from 8% to 13%

Engineering improvements

In 2011, we built a sidewalk and curb and gutter on 108A Avenue from 148 Street to Oriole Drive, fronting Riverdale Elementary, to improve student pedestrian and traffic safety.

In 2010, we put bike lanes on 148 Street and replaced the old sidewalk, to improve student pedestrian and cyclist safety.
