In Montclair, there’s a new, old way for kids way for kids to get to school, one that organizers say is more fun and eco-friendlier that that big yellow school bus.
All aboard the Montclair Bike Bus, which rolls through town every Friday. With adults in reflective vests leading the way, the bike bus picks up kids and drops them off at any one of the township’s elementary schools. Organizers say the effort is part of a global movement toward “active transportation” – using clean, human energy instead of carbon-belching motors to get around.
