School Travel Planning Tools

« Back to main STP page

The School Travel Planning toolkit consists of one main document-the STP Facilitator Guide-as well as numerous additional documents containing tools that are needed throughout the STP process (all shown below). We recommend reading the STP Facilitator Guide before downloading and using any of the tools/documents so that you understand when and how each tool is intended to be used in the STP process. Each tool is referenced in the STP Facilitator Guide as an Appendix, so you'll notice that each tool is identified by its appendix number from the Guide.

Production of these materials has been made possible through a financial contribution from Health Canada, through the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer; and from the Public Health Agency of Canada. The views expressed herein represent the views of the "Children's Mobility, Health & Happiness: A Canadian School Travel Planning Model" project and do not necessarily represent the views of the project funders.
