Safe Routes to School


Bike Walk Knoxville is 1 of 52 partner agencies United Way of Greater Knoxville supports and provides funding!  Bike Walk Knoxville was awarded a 3 year United Way grant to expand the Knox County Safe Routes to School Partnership program to more elementary schools including development of the Walking School Bus and pilot Bike Train programs.  Safe Routes to School programs provide ways for school children to walk and ride bikes to and from school with their friends and volunteer adults in a safe environment. 

Safe Routes to School in Knox County is making a difference because:


On March 22nd, Bike Walk Knoxville in partnership with United Way of Greater Knoxville, Graystone Presbyterian Church, and the Great Schools Partnership launched Dogwood Elementary’s first Walking School Bus (WSB)! Nine students walked with teachers and volunteers to meet their parents at nearby Graystone Presbyterian after school. A special thank you to the Graystone congregation for sharing their space and to all those who volunteered.   Dogwood also got moving with Friday Morning Fun Walks before school around the greenway weekly. 

We already miss hanging out with all the great kids who participated Dogwood Elementary's first Walking School Bus Program and/or our weekly Friday Fun Walks.
Since launching these great events in just late February for our Fun Walks and not until after spring break for our Walking School Bus, we have led 25 walk events total! From our Walking School Bus which got up to 18 kids walking to Graystone Church, to our Friday Fun Walks with between 60-80 kids participating every week, we can certainly say Dogwood Elementary is getting moving!
Want to find out more about Safe Routes to School, starting a Walking School Bus at YOUR child's school, or simply support the program?  We'd love to help!  Please contact

    I would like to appreciate all your efforts, I have used many other services several times and I am very happy with it too. Finally once more thank you for this breathtaking article and I like this. I hope this will be very helpful to the students to complete their educational works related with the topics.
