          Abstract

          Normatively travel distance to elementary school should be within walking distance. However, the facts in several major cities in Indonesia showed that many school children travel beyond walking distance to reach their schools. 7he purpose of this study was to identify the influence of school clustering policy on travel distance of urban school children. The study is conducted by using respondents of elementary school children in Bandung. The results of this study indicated that if school clustering policy is applied, the total travel distance could be reduced as many as 6,285 meters per student in average. Keywords: travel distance, school clustering policy, urban school children eISSN 2514-7528 © 2017 The Author. Published for AMER ABRA by e-International Publishing House, Ltd., UK.
