Walking School Bus

Walking School Bus Trenton Public School District

The Trenton Public School District is pleased to announce the official launch of the TPS Walking School Bus (WSB) Initiative beginning in September 2023! The WSB is a group of children walking to and from school on a designated route. The suggested routes to school have already been planned out for families by school administrators, the Trenton Police Department (TPD), Greater Mercer Transportation Management Association (GMTMA), and the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT).


These routes have been determined to be the most direct and safest routes based on various factors and are in close proximity to where most students live in relation to their respective school. In addition, TPS will continue to work closely with TPD to ensure families see a regular crossing guard at every crossing guard post along the route. 


The Trenton Police Department has knowledge of these routes and will keep an eye out for our students during the morning and afternoon hours. Assistance from TPD will help provide more eyes on the street while walking with your feet!


Start your day the active way and hop on the bus! 

For additional information, please contact (609) 656-4900 ext. 5401 or contact your child’s school. WSB suggested routes are not available for high school students due to the vast amount of walking paths.
