Safer School Travel

The Program



The Safer School Travel Program was an ICBC program with a goal to assist Parent Advisory Committees in developing a School Road Safety Plan. School Parent Advisory Committees worked with the City of Nanaimo, RCMP, School District, ICBC, local residents, and community associations to identify issues and develop strategies to reduce the problems. Each school who participated in the program had specific needs, issues, and solutions.

The Outcome

Overall, five schools completed the program. You can view and download their Safer School Travel Walking Route Maps below:
