Kiss and Ride
The Kiss and Ride is a school organized program that allows parents to drop off or pick up their children in a safe place without having to park. Volunteers help children in and out of the vehicles and to or from the school / schoolyard. This program helps to reduce traffic congestion around the school.
Disclaimer: Active and Safe Routes to School does not encourage the installation of Kiss and Rides. An unexpected consequence of a Kiss and Ride is increased idling. Research has shown that idling near schools can have negative impacts on children. Therefore, we have developed these resources to try to mitigate some of the negative impacts associated with Kiss and Rides. These resources were created to help make Kiss and Rides more effective and safer.
