Investigation of supportive policy for Active School Travel: Evidence-based recommendations for policies to promote active transportation for school journeys

Walking and wheeling to/from school represents an important source of physical activity for children. As policy decisions about how we build our neighbourhoods, schools, and transportation systems have changed, we have seen a worrisome decrease in the number of children who use active modes of travel to get to/from school. We have limited research mapping existing policies related to school travel planning across and within school, municipal, and regional districts.
