Active School Travel Programs
At EcoSuperior, we believe that staying active is crucial to achieving our mission of building a healthy future for people and the planet.
With support from Green Communities Canada, the Thunder Bay District Health Unit, and Ontario Active School Travel; the Walk or Wheel Thunder Bay Program supports year-round active school travel among children and youth in elementary grades.
Walk or Wheel Thunder Bay
Walk or Wheel Thunder Bay (WOW TBay) is a program that encourages families to choose active transportation for the trip to and from school. Active transportation refers to any form of human-powered (non-motorized) travel such as walking, cycling, using a wheelchair, scooter, or skateboard. It is part of a province-wide Ontario Active School Travel project with the hope of helping families realize the benefits of active travel such as increasing physical activity, along with physical, mental and emotional health while also benefiting our environment.
WOW TBay is run by EcoSuperior Environmental Programs and the Thunder Bay District Health Unit. It is a partnership that includes staff from Lakehead Public Schools, Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board, Student Transportation Services of Thunder Bay, the City of Thunder Bay, and Thunder Bay Police Service.
