Evaluation of Cycling Education Programs

Fewer children are walking or bicycling to school than ever before. Programs promoting active transport to school may increase physical activity in children’s lives and allow opportunities for independent mobility. Programs may be funded by municipal and provincial governments, or other stakeholders, but on the whole typically lack evaluation. In this project we focus on evaluation activities for cycling promotion programs in elementary schools in two Metro Vancouver municipalities – Surrey and New Westminster. The evaluation seeks to understand how well the program succeeded in encouraging students and families to change their school travel, and how this varies across schools and settings. This internship will provide the partner organization with resources to justify to potential funders and partners the importance of supporting cycling education program across diverse settings.
