duncan2016

The distance between home and school is the most consistent predictor of active transport in youth: the closer an individual lives to school, the more likely they are to use active transport.

Conclusions: A distance of approximately 2 km was associated with the best physical activity outcomes related to active transport (9% to 15% increase on weekdays). These findings havepotential implications for future intervent ions and for planning residential developments or facilities.
