School Travel Plans

School Travel Plans are a fundamental topic in the movement to promote sustainable transport. On these pages we have gathered together information, leads and ideas primarily for local authority officers, teachers, parents and transport campaigners but we hope they'll be useful to everyone interested in the subject.

This information is divided into the following sections:


Information about engineering solutions, traffic calming, school travel plans, accidents, pedestrian crossings, planning control and more.

Management & Consultation

Ideas on how to tackle the project, how to involve children, who to ask for suggestions and how to get the best out of your working groups. 

Travel Modes

Information on walking (including walking buses), cycling (including cycle-friendly traffic calming), public transport (including bus policies) and car use.


The joys and perils of working with others towards a common goal - including schools, health authorities, the police, campaigning groups and the various levels of local and national government.


A very brief overview of the environmental impacts of school-related vehicle traffic, with links to other useful websites.

Health and Personal Safety

Should children walk or cycle to school and get fitter - or should they travel by car and avoid being squashed by traffic or abducted by strangers? A brief discussion of these issues, with links to other useful websites.
