‘Bike Bus’ returns, expands to 5 schools to encourage bike riding

  • Date: 04/10/2024

The “Bike Bus” is returning this spring – and expanding – as part of an effort to encourage students to consider fun, alternative ways to commute to school. The initiative is being driven by the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, which promotes safe, accessible hiking and biking in Edwardsville (Illinois) as a way to enhance quality of life.

The Bike Bus debuted in the fall at Lincoln and Liberty middle schools to demonstrate how fun and easy it can be for students to travel via two wheels rather than four or more. For those unfamiliar with the concept, a bike bus follows a fixed route to and from school with designated "bus stops" along the way. At each stop, bicyclists from nearby neighborhoods and areas can join fellow student riders and the adults who will escort the bike bus. It’s an idea that’s in motion in numerous U.S. cities and school districts.
