Study looks at declining trend of kids walking to school
from The Toronto Star
The percentage of students getting a drive to school has doubled across Greater Toronto — even tripled in some areas — with Durham and Peel showing the largest increases, a new study has found. From 1986 to 2011, the number of 11- to 17-year-olds who walked or rode a bike to school declined by 12.9 per cent, while the percentage who rode in a car jumped from 14 to 33 per cent, according to the study, based on the Transportation Tomorrow Survey that looks at regional travel patterns every five years.
