Movin’March is a region-wide initiative that aims to increase active travel to school. Movin’March is an annual month-long campaign delivered in partnership with local councils throughout the Wellington region.  It is open to all Year 1-8 primary schools (ages 5-13yrs), and provides a range of competitions, incentives and resources to encourage and celebrate active travel modes to school (walking, biking and scooting).

Waka Kotahi is currently developing a Student Travel Data tool (Te Haerenga o Ngā Tamariki) to capture data around school travel across the country, and will be working with schools to pilot the programme early in 2021 .
