School Streets is a successful program from the U.K. that has been proven to improve safety, reduce air pollution, and encourage more active transportation.
A School Street is a car-free zone in front of a school at peak drop-off and pick-up times. It creates a safe space for students and families to walk, bike, scoot, play and interact as they arrive and depart each day.
Ontario Active School Travel and 8 80 Cities presented a webinar on School Streets on 21 November 2019. Presenters from the London Borough of Hackney, U.K., and 8 80 Cities shared their experiences of planning and implementing School Streets and highlighted resources available to support these initiatives.
