Active Living Research briefs on walking and bicycling to school
Active Living Research has released three research briefs summarizing recent studies of policies, programs, and practices that support walking and bicycling to school. The first brief covers the impact of state laws on walking and bicycling to school. The second brief examines the connection between state spending of Safe Routes to School funds and the implementation of projects at the local level that support safe, physically active trips to school. The third brief looks at the impact of Walking School Bus programs on children’s pedestrian safety behaviors. Full-text copies of the studies, all published in Health & Place (Vol. 18, Issue 1, January 2012, pp. 8-30), are available through ScienceDirect.
