Description of Tour:
Get on board Green Venture’s bus education program and prepare your students to ride city transit safely and effectively. Totally Transit equips young bus riders with the tools they need to ride transit and makes the connections between our transportation choices, energy use, air quality, climate change and healthy communities. Best of all the students put their knowledge to the test on a privately chartered Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) city bus.
Green Venture and the HSR chartered bus come right to the school doors to deliver Totally Transit on-site or the bus can be your transportation to and from an EcoHouse tour. Ask for more information, limited spots are available.
