Walking School Bus


What is a Walking School Bus?  It is a national movement where groups of children meet at a neighborhood gathering place each morning and walk to school under the supervision of school approved adult “bus drivers.”


In addition to having fun while getting daily exercise and learning about street safety, children arrive to school ready to learn.  These “buses” cut down on the traffic congestion and poor air quality associated with car lines dropping students off at school.  


If you are interested in starting a Walking School Bus program at your elementary school, please let ACF Executive Director Mark Berte know: mberte@joinACF.org or (251) 990-6002.

Since 1993, the Alabama Coastal Foundation (ACF) has worked to promote a culture where environmental decisions are based on an accurate understanding of the underlying science, the dissemination of factual information, and the engagement of government, industry and citizens to find solutions to Alabama's coastal environmental challenges. We bring that vision into reality through our inclusive environmental stewardship approach.

ACF makes it easy for you to connect to your coast! Keep up to date on events and opportunities to improve and protect Alabama's precious coastal environment.
