What is a bike bus?

A bike bus is a group of cyclists traveling as a single vehicle with the aim of getting kids to school safely. A bike bus typically consists of confident adult riders riding on the outside edges of the group providing protection for the less confident within the group. Bike buses travel at the speed of the slowest riders so no one gets left behind in what should be a relaxed enjoyable experience.

Why a bike bus?

  • To encourage active travel to and from school for families.

  • To reduce pollution in our wonderful city.

  • To reduce the number of vehicles on our roads during school drop off.
