At HASTe, we've always known that Active and Safe Routes to School programs like School Travel Planning work to increase rates of walking and cycling to school. And now, we have proof!
A recently-released US study looked at 801 schools in four states to "assess how the proportion of students walking and cycling to school changed after the introduction of SRTS programs". Find out what they discovered after the break.
The study, Impact of Safe Routes to School Program on Walking and Bicycle was published earlier this year in the Journal of the American Planning Association earlier this year.
