This report describes how student school travel in the U.S. changed from 1969 through 2009 using information from the 2001 and 2009 National Household Travel Survey (NHTS) and the 1969 and 1995 Nationwide Personal Transportation Surveys (NPTS). The report presents the two measures of school travel captured by the NHTS and NPTS: usual school travel mode as reported by parents (1969, 2009), and the school travel mode as reported by students on the day they completed a travel diary (1995, 2001 and 2009).
