Parent survey data collected by nearly 4,700 U.S. schools from 2007 to 2012 shows the percentage of K-8 children who walked to school in the morning increased from 12.4 percent to 15.7 percent.
On Wednesday, Oct. 9, thousands of students, parents and community members representing more than 3,800 schools across the United States will walk and bicycle to school to celebrate International Walk to School Day.
A more user-friendly and easier to navigate online data system awaits users who enter school travel data and parent surveys the next time they log on. A webinar on Sept. 11 will highlight the changes.
