Boys walking to Mansfield State School as part of Active School Travel program

The Active School Travel (AST) program offers Brisbane primary schools a suite of free resources, tools and incentives to enable students, parents, carers and teachers to leave the car at home and actively travel to school. It’s all about creating healthier, more active students and families, increasing road safety awareness, safer streets and continuing to tackle traffic congestion.

The award-winning three-year program promotes road safety and sustainable and healthy travel options such as walking, riding, scootering, carpooling and public transport.

The AST program aligns with Council’s Transport Plan for Brisbane – Strategic Directions to develop and implement targeted travel behaviour change programs.
