Walking to school is probably a good idea if your school is right across the street, and not a few kilometers away.

Many children in far-flung areas have to walk up to 2 hours just to get to school. Worse, there are students in some communities who have to swim – in full school uniform – across rivers because of their desire to study.

Arguably, the fastest and most affordable way to get out of town is still to take the bus. You don’t need to worry about paying for gas, toll, having comfy seats, or schedules.
