Transforming the School Run

Today the government announced £60 million of investment to transform the school run for millions of children, giving them more independence to walk, wheel or cycle to school and reap the benefits of a more active lifestyle.

  • Walking, wheeling and cycling are not just greener and healthier ways to get to school – for many children they are also more enjoyable.
  • That is why the Conservative government is investing £60 million to improve access to walk and cycle training programmes for children over the next two years – including £50 million for Bikeability cycle training which will reach 1 million children and £5 million to expand walk to school programmes.
  • Expanding these schemes will help put the joy back into journeys and create a generation of young people who feel confident to make healthier and greener travel choices.
