Abstract

Children's daily travel behaviour is dominated by the journey to school. In some cases, this movement takes only a few minutes and involves no means of transport other than foot; in other instances, the journey can be over substantial distances, be extensive in duration and involve some form of public or private transport. The combination of journeys taking place is likely to have a substantial impact on traffic congestion, particularly since the morning peak coincides with that associated with the journey to work. What datasets exist that allow us to measure and understand this behaviour?
