          Abstract

          Walking is a healthy way for children to explore their environment. However, nowadays, children prefer a passive mode of transport to commute to school. This paper aims to identify the factors that influence children to walk to school and evaluates the safety level of the children. This study, therefore, investigates children's preference to understand their perceptions on the choice to walk to school involving 100 primary school children in the Shah Alam City, Malaysia, through a case study method. Results indicated that distance to school, quality of the pedestrian facility and surrounding environment in a facility area affect the decision of children to walk to school.
