Why Create a School Travel Plan About


There are a number of reasons why schools may want to consider how their students, staff, parents/guardians and visitors travel to and from their establishments. These might include:


  • Problems with school gate congestion

  • Concerns about safety of students

  • Problems with parking (either on or off-site)

  • Lack of awareness about the benefits of using a range of different travel options

  • Lack of facilities to encourage the use of all modes of transport

  • Concerns about the health of students

  • Changes in school catchment, building size or numbers on roll

  • Concerns about the local environment


If a school has any of these concerns then it is likely that a successfully implemented School Travel Plan can help.
