Rolling Classroom fieldtrips give students the experience of riding an Intercity Transit bus and a chance to see behind the scenes at our maintenance facility.

What is a Rolling Classroom?

The field trip lasts about 1.5 hours depending on your school’s location. A Walk N Roll educator will come to your classroom to provide a short 15-minute, grade-appropriate presentation about active transportation and share information about riding the bus. Following the presentation, students will board an Intercity Transit bus that will pick up students in front of your school. Students, teachers, and parent volunteers will get to meet a driver and experience riding the bus as we transport your group to the Intercity Transit maintenance facility on Pattison Street in Olympia. At the facility the group will go on a personal tour followed by an exciting ride through the bus wash. We will then transport your group back to your school.

What your students will learn

  • What is active transportation and why it’s important.
  • How and why to ride the bus.
  • The services that Intercity Transit provides.
  • How Intercity Transit cares for the environment.
