Bike Trains follow a pre-planned route to school or other destinations and pick up students at designated stops. Routes can originate from a particular neighborhood or can be combined with other strategies like Park and Walk which allows students who live too far from school to walk from a designated off-campus drop-off location. Bike trains help address caregivers’ safety concerns while providing a chance for students and their families to socialize and be active.
