More walking + less driving = happy!

Andrea Smithson
Albany Primary School

This term seems to have disappeared very fast!! Just time to squeeze in our last Hands Up survey today, which showed some great results:

* 16% decrease in car trips compared to our last survey in August; and

* 11% decrease in car trips compared to the same time last year.

Great stuff APS kids and parents! Some evidence of these changes in our travel behaviour can be seen every afternoon with the number of kids using the Walking School Bus, currently up to 20 or more most afternoons. Thanks to our Your Move points, we recently received some more high-vis vests to make sure we've got enough for our extra walkers.

So good to hear the Walking School Bus is still going strong at APS! And very to good read that the Rewards Shop has provided some High Vis vests for you active transport initiatives! You've received 10 extra points for providing some analysis of your Hands Up Survey results, an 11% decrease in car trips over a 12 month period is a really great result. Keep up the great work next year!
