Paper presented at the 32nd Annual Southern African Transport Conference 8-11 July 2013 "Transport and Sustainable Infrastructure", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
This paper examines the relationship between mode of travel to school and the range of factors that might affect children’s choice of transport mode. The study reported upon in the paper uses data from school travel survey conducted in 2011 to analyse the factors affecting mode choice for primary and secondary school children. The data is modelled using a multinomial logit approach to explain the school mode choice for school children. Key factors are identified in terms of their influence on the choice of travel mode among school children. The paper concludes with a discussion on the policy implications of the results by indicating that community schools serving nearby residential areas as well as improved local conditions have the potential to attract non-motorised trips.
