What has happened to the free, simple adventure of walking to school?  
How has one community eradicated school buses and taken back the streets?

We can truly transform our cities through walking... See how one community of 51,000 has made school buses obsolete and is exploring  the positive side of walking to school including kids arriving better ready to learn, and saving over $1 million dollars.  Success!
