Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels are hosting our second School Run Summit on the morning of Tuesday 2 October at Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, 64 Balmoral Street, Glasgow G14 0BL

The Hands Up Scotland Survey looks at how pupils across Scotland travel to school and is the largest national dataset on school travel.

The 2018 survey will take place from Monday 10 until Friday 14 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.

Over the past few years the number of schools in Glasgow participating in the survey has been decreasing despite more schools across Scotland participating. Similarly the number of pupils being driven to school has been increasing in Glasgow despite low levels of car ownership.

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 2018 survey. You can see the headline results from 2017 below.

The project is funded by Transport Scotland and is a joint survey between Sustrans and all 32 Scottish local authorities
