Centro gives children travel advice
Over 3,000 West Midlands pupils starting secondary school this autumn are to be given specialised advice on travelling to their new schools by Centro, the region’s transport authority. Centro is providing 120 workshops at West Midlands schools to help youngsters prepare for the move from primary to secondary education. A total of 70 schools in Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton will be visited before the end of the school year. The ‘Letzgo Next Steps’ sessions take place during a school lesson with students given journey planning tips on using the bus, train, tram, walking or cycling to get to secondary schools in the area.
