Wayfinding Signs

Wayfinding signs give information to students and parents about how far they are from a school.

Benefits of wayfinding signs include:

  • Building independence and confidence
  • Building community awareness
  • Helping students plan their route to school
  • Make active travel seem easy
  • Encouraging physical activity

Learn more by visiting the Waterloo Region Active and Safe Routes to School (ASRTS) Committee's Wayfinding Signage Pilot Project Evaluation.
