This figure shows that active modes have increased from 32% to 40% from 2009 to 2014, largely due to a big increase in the number of children cycling, skateboarding or scooting to school. The largest mode share is still by car 56%; this share has declined from 62% in 2009. Public transport mode share is 4%, down from a peak of 5% in 2010.
An online tool is currently being developed and trialled to measure student travel to school; this is called 'Track our travel'. The results from this tool will be used in future monitoring reports.
