Journeys to school and school transport

The City of Tampere works to encourage active and sustainable transportation choices. Making trips to school on foot or using a bike serves to decrease car traffic in the school’s environs and adds to traffic safety. However, there are situations where a pupil needs transportation to school. The city pays for school transport, primarily by means of public transit. If public transit is not available or not usable by the child for health reasons, the city will organize a separate means of transportation on demand. The decision on school transport benefits will be made by the principal of each school.
