The start of a global Bike Bus movement?

Are we witnessing the start of a global bike bus movement? 

On 30th March 2023 Bike Bus leaders and other stakeholders joined the Bike Bus Summit 2023 to define a vision for Bike Buses globally, develop community resources and support more bike buses around the world.

One outcome was the Barcelona Declaration, a call to action that reflects the collective commitment of activists and leaders to promote active transport in communities around the world:

«The #Bicibús is joy and freedom. Community bike rides to school make boys and girls happier, awake and ready to learn. Our community becomes more connected and resilient. We show that our streets can also be for the little ones. As a #Bicibús community, we demand that our political leaders prioritize urban space and resources for child-friendly, healthy, and safer streets.” Bike Bus Summit, March 2023.

The Barcelona Declaration is a reminder of the importance of promoting active and sustainable mobility in our communities, and a call to political and urban leaders to prioritize the creation of safe and accessible urban spaces for children.
