Resumen

Active mobility for school-age children has been demonstrated to be critical to health, social relationships, and academic performance. That is why it is worrying that active mobility to schools has decreased in recent decades. Despite the growing interest in promoting school mobility on foot and by bicycle, the scientific evidence is scattered and poorly structured, making it difficult to make good decisions. This article aims to contribute to the systematization of knowledge about active school mobility through a review of scientific literature of the years 2009-2019, included in the bibliographic database Scopus. Parents make decisions about mobility mainly by parents, who see insecurity and road safety as barriers to active mobility. Factors related to the built environment, the socio-demographic conditions of the neighborhoods, the distance, the climate, and the convenience of the parents also have an influence. The literature review has also evidenced the concentration of studies in developed countries and the developing research on the subject in developing countries.
