The walking bus

The walking bus

Add to favorites

 Once, the some customer from Denmark asked me to make an application for school walking bus. I was very surprised when he told me more details about a bus. 

In some European countries, there is very popular idea to organize the children moving to the school and back by walk. The teacher assigns some oldest schoolchild or another teacher as a driver of the ‘bus’ and he develops a bus route. The driver should pick up the ‘passengers’ on the bus stops. The passengers should walk by two.

There are many benefits to use the walking bus. The parents can not worry about their children. The driver knows which passenger should arrived to a bus stop. He can notify parents immediately if their child not arrived to a bus stop. 

Also it have positive physical and social effect for children. For today, it’s very important to go walking extra 20-40 minutes per day for children, who have sedentary life in common.

The Governments of countries, who practice the walking bus program, tries to support it by providing special routes with minimal traffic.

It’s great idea, but not all countries can practice this because they have a cold or hot weather, often rains. Also poor countries does not have money to provide safe routes.

Thank you, Alex.
It seems a good idea. Do you think it is possible to apply it in the country where you live?

I think in Eastern Europe, they have such "buses" everywhere the school needs to take kids somewhere like to a museum or movie theater. I could often observe it in use as a kid, and even was myself engaged in it a few times. While I support the idea of increasing the walking rate for the kids, I partially view it as teaching the kids to become a kind of herd, and this one's what I oppose. I think the original goal could be met in different ways other than herding kids - like if the parents [financially] encouraged the kids to walk to school rather than getting a car/bus ride, or bought them cool bikes the kids could show off at school, and so would ride them all the time, etc.
