HandsUp! counts

The Ride2School HandsUp! system is a key reporting tool used by schools in our program. HandsUp! counts help schools measure their progress and support more students to become physically active. 

  • Schools can measure the number of students riding and walking to school
  • Track the progress of your school’s active travel rate over time
  • The information gathered can be used to advocate for improved walking and riding conditions in the community
