Arrive in Five: Walk and Roll Zones

Designated Drop Off and Meet Up Zones for Schools

 

These designated zones provide a safe and accessible area on a local street within a five minute commute to school. Zones can be used for parents to drop off and pick up their children or for groups to meet up and roll / walk together. The program is intended to ease vehicle congestion and parking demand in front of schools. 

PACs and School Administration of participating schools will support promotion and encouragement activities for using these zones. Signage from the City will be installed to inform parents and area residents of the zone which will be made available during school morning and afternoon peak times. 

Interested schools can inform city staff of their intent to establish an “Arrive in Five” zones by emailing eng@victoria.ca with this subject line. Staff will then review the area around the school and find a suitable location as the designated drop off/pick up area.
