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 2018 our AST schools achieved the following results:

  • 51% of students were actively travelling to school each day
  • car trips reduced from 70% to 49%
  • walking trips increased from 19% to 35%
  • 83% of parents reported their child’s road safety awareness improved as a result of the program.

Brisbane City Council is currently working with the following AST schools over a three-year period:
