Active School Travel Program (AST) was introduced in September 2021 partner with York Region, Smart Commute Central York, the York Region District School Board and the York Region Catholic School Board. This active transportation pilot project includes visible infrastructure components to get kids walking or scooting and to help increase the safety of pedestrians in school areas.
