Travel to school research


DfI first inserted questions in the Northern Ireland Continuous Household Survey (CHS) in 2013/14 to ascertain how primary and post-primary school pupils travel to and from school and these questions have been asked each year since. The findings are reported in this publication. Statistics are presented on all modes of travel, the main modes of travel, and the main modes of travel by distance from school.
