Rolling Classroom

Rolling Classroom field trips teach youth about the importance of public transit and give students a positive bus riding experience. Field trips are free and we bring the bus to you!

What is a Rolling Classroom?

An Intercity Transit Walk N Roll educator will provide a short, grade-appropriate, presentation about active and public transportation. Following the presentation, students will board an Intercity Transit bus for a short ride and scavenger hunt. Activities may be modified for group size and scheduling needs.

Due to COVID-19 and construction, Rolling Classroom field trips are temporarily unable to provide a tour of our maintenance facility. See the video below for a virtual tour.

What your students will learn

  • What is active and public transportation and why it’s important.
  • How to ride the bus.
  • How transit is good for the environment.

Who can request a Rolling Classroom?

Rolling Classrooms are for schools and youth organizations serving grades pre-K through 12. Field trips can accommodate 35 people. Larger groups will need to schedule more than one field trip. We serve schools and youth organizations in Tumwater, Lacey, Olympia, and Yelm.
