          Abstract

          This paper examines the influences of the built environment (distance between home and school) on the journey to school as a measure to promote active transportation to school. Data collected through a survey of 150 parents to represent Section 7 residents of Shah Alam, Selangor. This study shows that there is an insignificant relationship between school location and parents’ transportation mode choice. The most popular mode of transport chosen by parents was their private car compared to walking and cycling even though the distance from home to school was less than 800 meters because of a safety factor.
