Walking bus sponsorship

Walking Bus Stop In Medway we have more than 40 walking bus routes, with more than 900 children walking to and from school. We invite local organisations and businesses to support this environmentally-friendly mode of travel by sponsoring a local walking bus route.

What exactly is a walking bus?

The Medway Walking Bus scheme is designed to be a fun, safe and healthy way to get to and from school. Each route or bus has a starting point or ‘Stop’ that at present are only known and seen by the participants of that bus. Medway Council is introducing a permanent stop which will be highly visible and therefore an excellent opportunity for your organisation to show support for its local community.
