HASTe Hub for Active School Travel (HASTe)

HASTe is British Columbia’s leading active and safe routes to school programmer and resource centre. We are the Hub for Active School Travel (HASTe) and work with communities and partners across the province to connect kids, schools and communities through walking and cycling. Click here to learn more.

History

HASTe was launched in 2007 with funding from the BC government to act as a resource and networking hub for schools looking to reduce their transportation emissions. Over the years, as HASTe worked to fulfill this original mandate, the organization developed and implemented its own programs to help schools work towards reduced emissions and increased levels of safe and active travel. Originally a project of EEAP (The Environmental Education Action Program Society), HASTe incorporated as a worker’s cooperative in February of 2015.

Programs and Services

HASTe provides all necessary facilitation to bring school, parents, children, planners, engineers and the public sector together to encourage active travel to and from schools of all kinds. HASTe provides complimentary programming to support School Travel Planning (STP), community engagement, and best-route mapping; manages events; develops pilot projects; and works with municipalities, regional transportation authorities and school districts. We provide consulting and knowledge transfer support through direct advice and workshops, and work with online technology on support on-the-ground learning and programs.

Who does HASTe Serve?

Our clients are municipalities, regional districts, schools, and any community seeking to encourage, promote or support healthy, safe and environmentally sustainable travel. We support a community-based approach that engages children and their families, students and their teachers, governments and advocates, planners and researchers.
