Abstract

The journeys between home and school are less and less on foot or by bicycle. Too long distance was mentioned by parents as a motivation to drive children by car. However, primary school is often a nearby destination. This article discusses the role of proximity in modal choice during school trips in Montreal and Trois-Rivières. Based on a survey of 1495 parents, there is a strong relationship between the type of school and the distance of journeys, as well as a threshold for walking and cycling in motorised modes.
