Where do Cairene Children Walk to Primary School?

By Noha Darwish, Hisham Gabr and Dina Shehayeb


AbstractConsidering the Cairene context and its urban extensions, this paper hypothesizes that planned urban districts are becoming less suitable for children to walk to school. A questionnaire was sent to parents of children in grades 4, 5 and 6 of 3 schools; one in each of Dokki/Mohandeseen (n=406), Madinet Nasr (n=124) and 6th of October City (n=98) to explore the mode by which students travel to school and the different variables affecting the parental perception and decision. Results showed that active school travel is much less practiced in new cities than in the inner city districts with percentages 35.3% in Dokki, 40.9% in Madinet Nasr and 12.5% in October
