Hands-Up for Better Data!
Bike Walk Roll Week is taking place in British Columbia and Ontario from October 16-20, 2023.
Learn more about the initiative.
Ask students how they travelled to school with a 30-second “hands-up” survey. How many walked, biked, rolled, took the bus, or were driven?
Record the answers and hit “submit”.
After your survey, the program generates your BikeWalkRoll score! Compare your score to other classrooms or nearby schools.
Do it again the next day!
Bike Walk Roll Week is being led by Green Communities Canada with funding from Infrastructure Canada’s National Active Transportation Fund. The event is being coordinated in British Columbia and Ontario with the objective of establishing a travel mode baseline for elementary and middle school students. This is accomplished by a combination of hands-up surveys in classrooms and a supplementary household travel survey for families.
See hands-up survey info sheet for instructions on how to participate.
