International Walk and Bike to School Day
October 4, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 9:30 am
The City of Burbank and Burbank Unified School District (BUSD) will join schools from around the world to celebrate International Walk and Bike to School Day on Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
Several thousand students from schools throughout the District will be walking and rolling to school Wednesday morning along with parents, teachers and the community. Motorists are encouraged to be on the lookout for an increased number of pedestrians and bicyclists between the hours of 7:00 A.M. and 9:30 A.M.
Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling, and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between families, schools and the broader community.
