TFL STARS & HOMERUN
Discover how HomeRun can help you achieve your Gold Star!
TfL's STARS accreditation scheme now partnered with HomeRun, has made it even easier to achieve Gold!
HomeRun inspires young Londoners to think differently about travel to school sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely by championing walking, scooting and cycling.
Supporting pupils' wellbeing, helping to reduce congestion at the school gates and improve road safety and air quality.
A HEALTHIER AND SAFER LONDON...
Each year STARS schools replace 13 million miles' worth of car journeys with walking, cycling and scooting!
The average journey to school is less than one kilometre, that's around a 10-minute walk. However, many of these journeys are made by car leading to congestion and an unsafe and polluted environment for us all. By swapping car journeys for active travel, together STARS schools can make a real difference to our city and support the Mayor's vision for healthy streets.
