Portsmouth has the highest walk to school rate in the country, with over 70% of our city children walking to school every day.

Portsmouth City Council encourages children to walk or cycle to and from school by offering road safety training and initiatives, such as introducing targeted traffic calming and the creation of safer walking and cycling routes, as well as working with schools to create school travel plans.

Plan your safe route to school on foot with Walkit, or to plan a cycle route check out Cycle Streets. Car drivers may like to take advantage of the council’s free child car seat checks.
