Commuting to School

Get To School Safely

West Vancouver school zones, traffic calming such as traffic circles, speed bumps, signage... and more.

School Safety Assessment Program

An annual program to assess safety concerns in school zones and develop a prioritized list of recommended actions.

School Travel Mini-Grant

Mini-grant funding to encourage safe and active travel (walk, bike, roll, and transit) to and from school.

Please do your part to keep all our children safe.

The speed limit in school zones is 30 km/hr. By slowing down, obeying signage, and using extra caution when driving in or near school zones, you can help keep our school zones safe during the school year (September to June).

Fewer cars around schools reduce congestion, traffic conflicts, and improve student safety. Choosing active transportation like walking or cycling to school is good for students' health and cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions for a cleaner environment.

A joint School Traffic Advisory Round Table (START) meets regularly to review challenges to traffic safety and movement around schools and to recommend improvements to engineering, education, and enforcement.
