Findings Series 28 - Adult active travel

Feb 2011

This briefing paper relates to GCPH's "Moving in the right direction?" research programme, set up in 2008 to develop new knowledge and understanding and to evaluate the impact of travel-based policies and initiatives in the Glasgow and Clyde Valley region. 

The programme has three main strands: 

  • A baseline quantitative analysis of existing data sources.
  • Qualitative research exploring travel patterns and attitudes towards active travel in and around Glasgow.
  • A review of the impact of Scottish national, regional and local strategy and policy on levels of active, sustainable travel.

Briefing paper 28 summarises the main findings from the baseline quantitative analysis, drawing upon a more comprehensive report which will be made available for download on the GCPH site soon.

Briefing paper 29 summarises findings of a related analysis of children's travel.

Are trends in adult active travel moving in the right direction?
