Active School Travel schools and results

The Active School Travel (AST) program offers Brisbane primary schools a suite of free resources, tools and incentives. The program encourages students, parents, carers and teachers to leave the car at home and actively travel to school. Since 2004, 162 schools and more than 113,000 students have participated in the Active School Travel (AST) program.

In 2019 our AST schools achieved the following results:

  • 24,300 students from 45 schools engaged with the program
  • almost 1 in 2 families left the car at home
  • on average, 47% of students actively travelled, with some schools reporting up to 75% of their students actively travelling to school
  • walking trips increased from 17% t0 31%, which equates to almost 5000 more walking trips per week from students in the first year of the program.

The 2019 award-winning AST schools were Acacia Ridge State School, Mansfield State School and Greenslopes State School.
