Requested by Congress in the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century, PL 105-178, this new report examines the relative safety of various modes of transportation -- such as buses, passenger vehicles, bicycles, and walking -- by which schoolchildren travel to and from school and extracurricular activities.
These briefings were for members of Congressional and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 18, 2002 and can be found, in its entirety, on the National Academy Press Web site.
