This seminar will present the methodology and findings of research conducted via UBDC’s http://ubdc.ac.uk/outreach-plus-training/sasnet/fellowship-programme/, to investigate the relationship between behaviour change interventions (delivered by Sustrans and partners) and small-scale infrastructure delivery on how children travel to school.

Active Travel to School: The Effectiveness of School-based Travel Interventions
Monday 23rd October 2017, 11:00am – 12:30pm, Sir Alwyn Williams Building
This seminar will present a background to Sustrans' ongoing work on active travel in Scotland and decribe the SASNet fellowship project which has sought to understand what interventions (and combinations of interventions) are most effective at achieving increased active travel to school among pupils.
The research focuses on active travel to school and on data from primary schools in Scotland. The Hands Up Scotland Survey (HUSS) is an official statistic on how children travel to school that is published annually by Scotland. The HUSS dataset is examined alongside three years of data on the delivery of interventions by Sustrans and partners, Scottish government data on deprivation and rural/urban categorisation and geo-spatial data to better understand the impact of Sustrans’ interventions on active travel to school, including how this is influenced by other factors.
• To provide an overview of the effectiveness of behaviour change interventions on active travel to school in Scotland
• Outline an understanding of other socio-demographic and geographic factors that influence active travel to school
• Discuss methodological challenges in investigating school travel behaviour
