School cycle buses provide a safe way for children to cycle to school escorted by parents and volunteers. They provide a great way to introduce children to cycling and off exercise for parents and children, reducing the congestion and pollution caused by the school run
The St Augustine’s Catholic Primary School Cycle Bus was set up in 2019 and is Warwickshire’s first school cycle bus.
Set up by local parents Aurélie and Adam Tranter (who became the first Bicycle Mayor of a UK City in February 2020), the school cycle bus provides a safe environment for children to cycle to school in the absence of safe cycle infrastructure.
This website provides brief information on the bus as well as a guide on how to set up your own.
