School Travel Planning

Beaver Creek Elementary - Bike to School Week

Every year, the City and our program facilitators work with interested elementary schools for 12 to 18 months to develop more ways to encourage active travel. School Travel Planning is a fun, supportive way to encourage students to walk or ride their bikes to school. It involves students, parents and teachers coming together to create a plan that fits the needs and culture of each school.

School Travel Planning team members include school administration staff, parents and guardians, school crossing guards, neighbours, students and agencies and organizations that care about safe and active communities.

The teams work together with Surrey's Engineering Department to assess a school's current situation, determine its vision and goals for the future, and identify and implement actionable items.

School Travel Planning Progress

Check to see whether your child's elementary school has already undergone School Travel Planning. Components of School Travel Planning include action plans, Best Routes to School documents, infrastructure improvements, and Safe Routes to School Maps. If your school is not listed and you are interested in participating, ask your school to sign up before June to participate in the upcoming year.

Safe Routes to School Maps

We're conducting parking reviews for elementary schools throughout the City. The purpose of these reviews is to identify potential safety issues and mitigation measures related to parking, stopping, and pick-up/drop-off activities both on the school site and on the adjacent roads.

Check to see whether your child's elementary school has a Safe Routes to School Map available using the drop-down list below. All Surrey elementary schools are targeted for completion by the end of the 2018/19 school year.
