Thousands Across Georgia Celebrate Walk To School Day

Atlanta, GA--  Thousands of Georgia elementary and middle school students from nearly 100 schools marked the 13th annual International Walk To School Day with various activities this morning aimed at promoting healthy and safe walking and bicycling to and from school. 

Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Vance C. Smith, Jr., joined students, parents, faculty and staff of Atlanta’s Mary Lin Elementary School in arrival festivities.  “This is a wonderful event and it serves a great purpose,” Smith said.  “So many children will enjoy walking or biking to school if we’ll just continue to make it convenient and safe for them to do so.  They’ll be healthier and roads and streets around schools will be that less crowded.”

Less than 15 percent of all school trips are made by walking or biking.
