School Trip by Transit

Peterborough Transit’s regular routes and schedule provide a transportation option that is inexpensive, convenient, and a valuable student experience. So why not jump on Peterborough Transit for your next class trip!

Active School Travel Peterborough encourage teachers to use Peterborough Transit for a range of benefits:

    • Expand the learning experience beyond your field trip destination. It is an important life skill to be able to plan a route and interpret a schedule.
    • Lower the carbon footprint and the cost of your class trips by taking public transit.
    • Increase familiarity and comfort with transit, so riding the bus can feel more normal and accessible.
    • Public transit is currently free for youth!

Active School Travel Peterborough can help you get on the bus by:

    • Assist with route planning and interpreting the transit schedule;
    • Providing a short presentation to students on why to take transit, how to use transit, and more;
    • Providing additional classroom materials that can support learning;
    • Providing Day Passes* for adult riders;
    • Liaising with Peterborough Transit.

*A limited number are available and will be distributed, first come first served.
