MODE OF TRAVEL TO SECONDARY SCHOOLS

THE RESULTS ARE PRESENTED OF A JOURNEY-TO-SCHOOL SURVEY CARRIED OUT AT A MAJOR SECONDARY SCHOOL CAMPUS. THEY SHOW A DISTINCT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MODE OF TRAVEL AND DISTANCE TRAVELLED. THE EFFECT ON MODAL SPLIT OF BAD WEATHER IS MAINLY REFLECTED IN A DECREASE IN THE CAR PASSENGER MODE. IT ALSO APPEARS THAT THE CAR OWNERSHIP LEVEL (ONE CAR OR TWO CARS PER FAMILY) DOES NOT AFFECT THE MODES OF WALKING AND CYCLING, BUT HAS A LIMITED EFFECT ON BUS USAGE. FURTHERMORE, PUPILS ARRIVE IN THE MORNING OVER A PERIOD OF 45 MINUTES BEFORE SCHOOL STARTING TIME. /AUTHOR/
