Lord Selkirk – School Active Travel Plan

Lord Selkirk Elementary was one of four schools participating in the City of Vancouver 2015/2016 School Active Travel Program (SATP). This process seeks to improve the safety and comfort of walking and cycling to school, and to encourage more students and families to use active transportation modes to get to and from school. SATP directly supports the
City of Vancouver Transportation 2040 policy and actions related to creating higher quality walking and cycling routes to schools. Click here to read the 2017 report (2018 report to be out soon!).
