Walking and Biking During 2020-21 School Year

When the schools reopen face-to-face, bus capacity will be extremely limited. Walking and biking will be more important than ever! Stay tuned to learn how we can support families and neighborhoods to plan safe routes to school.

The Program

As part of the Virginia Safe Walk to School Program, the City of Charlottesville is working to improve the safety of families walking and bicycling to school. Be on the lookout for new projects, including improvements to or additions of sidewalks, crosswalks, pedestrian signals, bike lanes, and other facilities near Charlottesville City schools!
