Cooler weather is finally here! This fall, Leander ISD is encouraging students and families to consider walking or biking as an option for getting to and from school.

Here are some reasons to support walking and bicycling to school:

  • It’s fun! Walking or biking can bring a sense of joy and independence.
  • It promotes healthier habits! The trip to school can help children and adults get the physical activity they need.
  • It promotes a cleaner environment! Ditching the car and walking or biking to school can reduce traffic congestion and air-polluting emissions.
  • Community benefits! Walking or biking to school reduces traffic congestion, boosts a sense of community and improves neighborhood connections that benefit the entire school community.
