Abstract


School trips characterize the main daily commute by students. Understanding how these trips are made and which aspects influence their choices is fundamental to provide improvements in transportation and quality of life for students. From a literature review, we listed aspects impacting the selection of the transportation mode used in school trips and the satisfaction with the quality of scholar transportation provided to the students. To qualify scholar trips in small cities, high school students from 10 schools located in 6 different cities of the central region of Rio Grande do Sul State were selected, totaling 763 students interviewed. Through the application of a qualitative and quantitative questionnaire we collected data on target audience, trips, perceptions of trips and satisfaction with scholar transportation, providing information for the diagnosis of the scholar trips. With the results obtained, it is possible to guide public policies aimed at improving the quality and safety of scholar trips.
