Commute Options is starting new walking school bus routes at schools throughout Bend La Pine School District. We’re looking for paid leaders and volunteers to help get these routes running and your kids walking!

A walking school bus is a group of students walking to and from school on a planned route with an adult leader. Much like a school bus, as the students walk to school, they can pick up more classmates along the way.

This option is great for students that live in the walk zone around their school and don’t have bussing options, or even students who want to walk with friends and get dropped off at the start location. This reduces congestion around the school at pick up and drop off times, saves gas money and time in the mornings and offers kids a fun physical activity to start and end their school day! 

We’re looking for paid leaders specifically for the Healy Heights route to Bear Creek Elementary. Paid leaders are expected to reliably lead the school bus every school day morning and afternoon. If this sounds like a good fit for you check out our job job description and  Application to get started today!

We are also looking for volunteers to help at our other walking school bus routes. If you’re interested in volunteering reaching out to
