About the Program
Biking to school is fun, healthy, and often faster than the school bus. Seward has an automated bike program that rewards kids for riding their bike to school. Just get your Zap tag from the office, register it and ride by the zapper by the bike racks. When it beeps, your ride has been logged. Ride at least 8 times per bike month to be eligible for prizes.
Don't have a bike or helmet? Contact and we can help.
