“What a nice and innovative project to bring people together! The city council is proud to support the Trottibus Walking School Bus project, in particular the one in the Quatre-Vents School in Saint-Janvier. The pedestrian buses of the Trottibus Walking School Bus project make our neighbourhoods more dynamic and school routes safer while promoting active transportation and healthy habits in the young and old alike. So, we can say that the Trottibus Walking School Bus offers many benefits without demanding a heavy financial contribution from the municipality.”

“Children leave the house and join the volunteers, clearly identifiable by their race bibs, and they are proud to walk to school.”

“It’s great for the children because they get some physical exercise and arrive in school full of concentration.”
