Council has commenced its 2024 Ride & Stride program with 5 new primary schools in Merri-bek.

Council will work with Moomba Park Primary, Belle Vue Park Primary, St Pauls Primary, Pascoe Vale Primary and Brunswick North Primary to increase walking, riding and scooting to school.

Through subsidised e-cargo bike loans, bike maintenance programs, Open Streets and more, we want to see more families travelling in healthier and happier ways to school.

We’re also continuing our work with Ride & Stride schools from previous years through our volunteer-led Open Streets program.
