Active Transport, Physical Activity, and Distance Between Home and School in Children and Adolescents

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.
