The Walking Bus is very popular in many European countries, particularly in England, Italy, and Germany and also in Australia. This initiative aims at encouraging children to be active everyday, and to learn about road safety and a smoke-free environment. Children meet every morning at the bus terminus or walking bus stops and walk to school as a group accompanied by their parents. One of the parents collects the bags in his/her car, and the children can walk without carrying their heavy bags. On arrival at school, children collect their bags from the car and walk in.
