BikeWalkRoll

BikeWalkRoll is a quick and engaging online survey tool to help understand how students travel, easily collecting and summarizing information on how students are getting to and from school.
First developed by Winnipeg-based 
Green Action Centre, this simple, user-friendly app represents a time-saving alternative to the current paper-based classroom travel survey.

Existing methods of school travel data collection tend to be paper-based and are time-consuming to conduct the survey and analyse the results. BikeWalkRoll offers an online survey tool that is quick to use in the classroom and instantly generates travel mode data. The tool is also designed to engage students and teachers by awarding them a BikeWalkRoll score based on their level of active travel, and then comparing that score with other schools in their community, their school district and even around the world.

A webinar was held on 28 February 2019 to present the key features of BikeWalkRoll and present examples of how the tool is being used to measure student travel and engage schools in active transport initiatives in Manitoba and Ontario.
