What is School Travel Planning (STP)?
School Travel Planning (STP) encourages active transportation to and from school by developing an action plan to build upon strengths and work to remove concerns around your school.
Green Communities Canada is the innovator of School Travel Planning. The process and resources found within our local School Travel Planning Manual have been adapted from the national School Travel Planning Toolkit to be specific to the Elgin, Middlesex and Oxford communities. Visit the national ASRTS website for additional STP details, inspiring success stories, downloadable resources and more.
