School (Transport & Pedibus)
In order to transport the pupils to the primary school "Am Sand" in Oberanven, the town offers a performant school bus service.
It consists of 8 different lines, serving all the localities in the municipality of Niederanven.
3 of 8 lines are served by buses belonging to the municipality.
Please find the schedules of the bus lines in our publications.
For the non-class afternoons or other free time, these buses also serve the local music school, tutoring or transportation of elderly people going to the shopping center in Niederanven.
Pedibus Niederanven: a project that works!
The Pedibus is a school “bus” system, done only by walking and works on the following principle: adults accompany a group of children on their way to school. Like a traditional bus, the Pedibus picks up the children at different predefined places and leads them to school on a fixed route and according to a fixed schedule.
How does the Pedibus work?
The children wait for the Pedibus at the agreed meeting point. Throughout the journey, done by walking only, the Pedibus picks up children joining the convoy at the various stops. Nothing is easier! However, a registration is required.
The children, in the company of their comrades and two adult guides, will be able to reach their school in a safe, healthy and ecological way.
This service is offered for children up from cycle 1. A covered cart transports additional material and school bags. The Pedibus circulates in all weathers, which by experience poses no problem if children are well protected by adequate clothing.
Why should our children walk to school?
- Going on foot is good for your health!
In order to avoid overweight problems often due to lack of movement and a sedentary lifestyle, parents should encourage their children to walk more regularly.
- Going on foot is more fun!
Meeting, discussing with other children and discoveries along the way are of great importance for the social development of our children.
- Going on foot is good for the environment!
Car traffic on the way to school and in front of school buildings causes a significant pollution of the environment. Therefore walking contributes to protecting the environment.
