Maplewood K-5 School in SW Portland has established an impressive “Walking School Bus” program.
With 4 (soon to be 5) different walking routes to school every Thursday, an average of 35 students are arriving to school by foot on those days, and on celebration days participation tops 100 students.
Despite being located in hilly SW Portland with very few sidewalks to school, Maplewood families have successfully developed an active commute culture, experiencing increased safety and visibility in numbers. Congratulations, Maplewood!
