We've just wound up our active transport survey, and the results are very interesting! Some confirmed our thoughts, others are maybe a little more challenging, but also exciting.
While 63% of our respondents lived less than 5km from school, only 30% regularly walked and 15% regularly cycled or scooted to school. Two thirds of students arrived at school by car on 4 or 5 days in an average week.
The really interesting bit is the reasons why people drive, and the things that people thought would make it more likely for their kids to be able to walk or cycle instead of driving them to school. Some things we can't change (like the Albany weather!), but others we can - and these are the things we will keep front of mind in the next steps of our Your Move journey.
