Abstract

Nowadays, the development of ICT has had a positive impact in the management of transportation system since they can provide useful information for citizens and local administration in real time. On the other hand, family habits related to children’s displacements to school have changed, increasing motorized displacements against active modes. In order to reverse this situation, Walk to School programs are being developed by local administrations. One of the possible actions in these programs is the walking school bus. This article presents a study about the feasibility of a technological tool for the management and coordination of walking school buses: Trazeo. It has been checked that this tool increases the parental confidence on walking routes to school promoting safe, healthy and sustainable habits among children.
