Brisbane Active School Travel Program
Queensland | Urban
Providing good walking and cycling routes around schools encourages active travel and has a positive effect on mental and physical health. The two most important factors supporting active school travel are distance to school and features of the built environment- including pedestrian infrastructure, traffic and perceptions of safety.
Way2Go is a South Australian program geared to promoting active travel for primary school students and their communities.
Way2Go is a great example of Healthy Active By Design Movement Networks evidence and checklist in practice.
New Way2Go video case studies are now up on their website
The Heart Foundation’s vision is that every child who can, walks, cycles or takes public transport to and from school on safe and pleasant streets. We advocate for governments to invest in safer, greener and more active school travel.
