Why HandsUp?

Students riding to school

HandsUp! counts help schools measure their progress and support more students to become physically active. The Ride2School HandsUp! system is a key reporting tool used by schools in our program.

  • Schools can measure the number of students riding and walking to school
  • The information collected can be used to advocate for improved walking and riding in the local community
