Objective: To prospectively examine potential benefits of active commuting to school on measures of weight status and physical activity in a sample of youth. 
The influence of distance to school on the associations between active commuting and physical activity.
TLDR
For both boys and girls, significant positive associations were observed between walking to school and physical activity and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity during weekday journey times and the size of association became stronger with increasing distance from school. Expand
Influence of Sports, Physical Education, and Active Commuting to School on Adolescent Weight Status
TLDR
Team sport participation had the strongest and most consistent inverse association with weight status and obesity prevention programs should consider strategies to increase team sport participation among all students. Expand
Active commuting to school and association with physical activity and adiposity among US youth.
TLDR
Before- and after-school MVPA mediated the relationships between active commuting and waist circumference, and active commuting was associated with greater MVPA and lower measures of adiposity among US youth. Expand
Active commuting to school in children and adolescents: An opportunity to increase physical activity and fitness
TLDR
The patterns of commuting to school in young people in Estonian and Swedish children and adolescents are described and ACS may provide an opportunity to increase levels of daily PA, especially in boys, and cardiorespiratory fitness, especially if cycling. Expand

Exploring the Association Between Commute to School Duration and Children's Physical Activity Level and Bodyweight Status
The commute to school is recognized as a daily activity with high potential for influencing children’s health behaviours and outcomes. While the impact of commute mode on children’s health has beenExpand
Systematic review of active commuting to school and childrens physical activity and weight.
TLDR
Although there are consistent findings from cross-sectional studies associating active commuting with increased total PA, interventional studies are needed to help determine causation. Expand
Associations between active commuting to school, fat mass and lifestyle factors in adolescents: the Kiel Obesity Prevention Study (KOPS)
TLDR
The present data suggest that active commuting to school per se does not affect FM or BMI until considering distance to school, however, the everyday need to get to and from school may enhance adolescents’ overall PA. Expand
Associations between active commuting to school and objectively measured physical activity.
TLDR
To provide more accurate assessment of active commuting in children and adolescents future studies should incorporate multiple methodologies such as global position systems (GPS), accelerometers, cycle computers, and self-reported measurements. Expand

Omission of active commuting to school and the prevalence of children's health-related physical activity levels: the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Study.
TLDR
The present findings suggest that, in order to avoid misclassification bias of children's physical activity levels, it is necessary to include questions about mode of commuting to school. Expand
Commuting to school: are children who walk more physically active?
TLDR
In boys, walking to school was associated with higher physical activity after school and during the evening, and active transport may contribute to a more physically active profile, at least for boys, supporting walk-to-school initiatives to increase children's physical activity. Expand
Objective physical activity of filipino youth stratified for commuting mode to school.
TLDR
Differences between commuting modes could not be explained by participation in sport/exercise or by current employment, and were found to be due to active commuting. Expand
Active commuting to and from school and BMI in elementary school children-preliminary data.
TLDR
Preliminary data suggests that active commuting does not appear to provide sufficient amounts of physical activity to attenuate BMI; however, it may contribute to the attainment ofPhysical activity recommendations. Expand

OBJECTIVE To describe prevalence of active, public, and car transit by overweight status and amount of leisure-time physical activity in a nationally representative cohort of ethnically diverse youngExpand
Physical activity and active commuting to elementary school.
TLDR
Walking to school was associated with approximately 24 additional minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per day in fifth-grade students, and the effects of active commuting to school on total daily physical activity and other health outcomes are clarified. Expand
Correlates of physical activity in a national sample of girls and boys in grades 4 through 12.
TLDR
Three variables had strong and consistent associations with the child physical activity index that generalized across subgroups: use of afternoon time for sports and physical activity, enjoyment of physical education, and family support for physical activity. Expand
Habitual physical activity and health-related physical fitness in fourth-grade children.
TLDR
Active children appear to engage in a sufficient variety of activities to enhance multiple components of health-related physical fitness. Expand
The broader impact of walking to school among adolescents: seven day accelerometry based study
TLDR
Objective measures of the children's activity with precalibrated accelerometers (MTI, Fort Walton, Florida; model 7164), which record activity accumulated each minute are obtained. Expand
Barriers to children walking and biking to school--United States, 1999.
TLDR
Long distances and dangerous motor-vehicle traffic pose the most common barriers to children walking and biking to school, and public health and community-based efforts that encourage walking and bike to school should address these barriers. Expand
