Transportation is a huge issue for sustainability, interconnected with community planning, life style and human health, economic considerations and environmental impacts. For schools it involves questions such as:
- How far do students travel to school, and what routes are available?
- What types of vehicles and fuels are transporting students to school?
- What maintenance practices are in use for school district vehicles?
- What do vehicles do while on school grounds?
