Currently, there is very little data on how schoolchildren in Manitoba are getting to and from school. At present we only have anecdotal information from parents and schools; this study aims to change that, and help us gather comprehensive and reliable data on the transportation landscape for Manitoba schoolchildren.

Once we have the data collected, we will be working with a team of Health Economists, Epidemiologists, and Climate change specialists to evaluate the data, and publish a report on our findings in the fall of 2017. We are hoping to use this report to spark a discussion on how children are transported to and from school every day, and ultimately encourage more parents and children to choose the healthier and less polluting choice by walking or biking to school instead of driving where possible.
