Launch of the walking bus pilot project ("Pedibus") in Bonnevoie and Cents in autumn 2021.
No more illegal parking on pavements or pedestrian crossings around schools! For the start of the school year in September 2021, the City is launching the walking bus (Pedibus) pilot project in two city districts. The walking bus will pick up pupils enrolled in Cycle 1.1 and up from different locations and safely escort them to school.
The walking bus operates exactly like a traditional school bus, only without a vehicle.
The main objectives of the "walking bus" initiative are to unclog traffic lanes around schools by cutting down on individual car use, and to educate children from a young age about road safety around schools and environmental protection.
The walking bus also has a positive social impact, allowing children to walk to school with their friends under adult supervision.
