The analyses in this report are based on data from the National Travel Surveys in Norway from 1992, 1998 and 2001. Three age groups are analysed, 13-15 years, 16-17 years and 18-24 years. Most of them own a cycle. The share with driving licence and access to a car has decreased during the period. The number of school trips per day is unchanged, but the travel length has increased for the two youngest groups. Public transport is the most common mode on school trips, between 40 and 58 per cent in 2001. Between 23 and 36 per cent walk to school, the youngest most often. In 2001 between 4 and 14 used their bike. From 8 to 13 per cent were car passengers.
