Active School Travel
Active School Travel (AST) emphasizes the importance of walking, cycling, and public transit.
The more students using ASST means less cars on the road, less pollution, improved safety, and increased physical activity.
Smart Commute Hamilton and the Hamilton AST Hub work to engage the community and schools in active and sustainable school travel initiatives.
The goal is to facilitate a measurable shift in travel behaviour towards active and sustainable travel through:
- Policy change
- Infrastructure improvements
- Capacity building
- Education and awareness
- Get a School Travel Plan
- Request a bike rack for your school
