Major STP study completed

TWO REPORTS on the feasibility of implementing School Travel Planning (STP) at the school board level are now available on Green Communities Canada’s Active and Safe Routes to School (ASRTS) website.

Three district school boards, 15 schools, and more than 8,000 students participated in the study, providing a detailed understanding of the challenges faced by community stakeholders and an analysis of the benefits and costs of STP delivery.

GCC received funding from the Ontario Ministry of Education and support from local school boards, transportation consortia, and municipal stakeholders to complete this research. The feasibility study was conducted in two different regions of the province (Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph and the City of Toronto) to compare urban, suburban and rural community settings.
