This report presents evidence that School Streets effectively reduce air pollution and road danger at times and places where the most vulnerable road users are most concentrated. 

This report by Transport for Quality of Life and the Active Travel Academy for Possible and Mum’s for Lungs finds that a comprehensive roll-out of School Streets that closed streets past schools at the beginning and end of the schoold day would reduce exposure to air pollution and road danger for 1.25 million primary and secondary students in London, Birmingham, Leeds and Bristol.
