Nobody likes car congestion around schools at drop-off and pick-up times. It’s stressful for parents, students, teachers and residents. It also leads to poorer air quality and road safety. Not to mention, sitting in cars instead of being active means our kids are missing out on vital exercise and social interaction.
To open up the streets around schools at drop-off and pick-up times so that children and adults can walk and ride freely, without having to worry about car traffic. Open Streets helps build safer, more connected, happier and healthier communities.
A happier, safer and healthier street environment for everyone.

Bicycle Network’s Ride2School team partner with schools and local authorities to facilitate special days where the streets surrounding a school are dedicated to active transport only. Opening the streets to walking, riding, scooting or skating instead of motor vehicles gives a small taste of what a more sustainable community can look like.
Open Streets days are carefully planned, with signage, traffic control and pre-event communication between schools, councils and residents. Drop-off points a short distance from the gates are also installed so that families who live further away can drive part-way and still enjoy the fun.
