The Hands Up Scotland Survey looks at how pupils across Scotland travel to school and is the largest national dataset on school travel.  The 2017 survey will take place from Monday 11 until Friday 15 September with schools selecting one day to carry out the survey.

Each September, schools across Scotland complete the survey in class by asking their pupils ‘How do you normally travel to school?’. Local authority officers distribute the survey to schools and return pupil responses to Sustrans for collation, analysis and reporting.

The results provide a valuable annual snapshot of school travel and are used by Sustrans, Transport Scotland and other groups to inform policy areas, monitor trends in school travel over time, and provide information relevant to a variety of health, transport and education initiatives.

For more information about the Hands Up Scotland survey please visit the Sustrans website where you can also download all the information for the 2017 survey. You can see the headline results from 2016 below.
