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, 168 schools and more than 127,000 students have participated in the Active School Travel (AST) program.

Despite the interruptions the COVID-19 pandemic had on schools, the AST program was still able to deliver the following achievements in 2021:

  • schools achieved over 60% active travel on a regular basis
  • 245 kids attended bike skills sessions and 379 attended scooter skills sessions
  • 83% of parents felt their child’s road safety knowledge improved since being in the AST program.

Approximately 90% of AST committee members agreed the AST program helped to increase student physical activity levels and foster community cohesion at their school.
