Friday Transportation Seminar - Walking and Biking on their Own: Modeling Children's Independent Travel to Neighborhood Parks and Schools
Friday, April 5, 2013 - 12:00pm to Friday, April 5, 2013 - 1:00pm

Join us on Friday, April 5, 2013 in Room 204 of the Distance Learning Center Wing of the Urban Center at PSU!

Joseph Broach, PhD candidate in Urban Studies, will discuss the results of his research, which models the propensity of children aged 6-16 to walk or bike to parks and school without an adult chaperone, extending existing work on children’s active travel in several ways: 1) focus on travel without an adult, 2) inclusion of school and a non-school destinations, 3) separate walk and bike models, 4) consideration of both parent and child attitudes and perceived social norms, 5) explicit inclusion of household rules limiting walking or bicycling.

This seminar is free and open to the public.
