The DSR has been active at St. Martin of Tours since fall of 2020. The school community has identified several projects to get more students walking/wheeling to school, including:

  • Identifying the main routes to school (click the school on the map to see them!)
  • Addressing traffic concerns in the neighbourhood
  • Designating routes to school with wayfinding signs
  • Wear yellow days

Transportation Profile

St. Martin of Tours is a Catholic Elementary School located in the Cherry Heights neighbourhood in Hamilton’s ward 10. According to data from the HWCDSB, there are 292 students who attend St. Martin of Tours from grades JK-8. 61% are within walking distance, 18% are bussed to school, and 21% are out of catchment; however, due to many different reasons, some students are driven to school in private vehicles. This is the case in every school across the City.

Our goal is to get 100% of students who live within 1.6km to walk or wheel to school on a daily basis. When we surveyed the community, we learned that 74% of students live within 1.6km from school, and that 47% of students usually walk or wheel to school. We would like to see this number go from 47% to 74%.

School begins at 8:20 and students are dismissed at 2:40.
