Providing a map is a great way to show students, parents, staff and visitors how easy it is to walk, scoot, ride a bike or catch public transport to your school. You can make your school access guide available on your school website, in your newsletter, on Connect, or provide printed copies at the front desk, at orientation days or during staff inductions.
Your Move makes it easy
If your school is registered on our website then you can use your redeemable points in our online 'Rewards shop’ to order your own school access guide and we’ll do all the hard work for you.
What is an Access Guide?
School access guides show walking, cycling and public transport facilities. They provide information specific to your school, such as:
- Walking paths
- Bicycle friendly routes
- Nearby bus stops and train stations
- Bike parking, pumps and repair stations
- Popular routes to school
- Kiss and ride points
- Crossing guard points
- High traffic areas

To order a school access guide from our ‘online rewards shop’ you will need to be an active member of the Your Move online community. This means you will have:
- Signed up to Your Move
- Registered your organisation on our website
- Completed at least one activity
- Posted stories on the website about what you've done to promote active travel
- Earned the 500 points required to order a school access guide
Once you have 500 points, or more, head to our online rewards shop and redeem your points for an access guide. We'll then email you with all the details, as well as requesting:

- A commitment to mark up the interactive map we supply with information about your school
What we do?
We will check the bicycle routes and public transport service information that connect with your school. We'll then pop it all in our handy template and make sure we provide information specific to your school. You'll have an opportunity to review it to check for accuracy and then we will provide you with a final PDF that can be shared online or printed.
