Bike to school programs are aimed at improving the daily travel experience and safety for young commuters and constitute an opportunity for behavioral shifts towards sustainable mobility. However, only a few cases of bike to school programs have been documented. The lack of information is especially critical in rapidly growing cities of the global south. This paper documents a promising bike to school program called “Al Colegio en Bici” implemented in Bogotá, Colombia. The program started running in 2013, after a year of planning. It is aimed at alleviating poverty by providing improved access to public schools to low income populations, and giving the children the opportunity to travel safely while using a sustainable mode of transport. More importantly, “Al Colegio en Bici” is expected to influence travel behavior in young generations, and thus may contribute to positively impact health and reduce harmful emissions in the long run. The paper describes the program and how it was implemented, and is expected to help other cities considering such programs as part of their sustainable mobility and access to education plans.
