For adolescents, 'after school' is an important time to accumulate health-related physical activity. Active commuting (walking or cycling) during this period may be an important factor in achieving daily activity goals. The results of a cross-sectional study examining physical activity in a sample of adolescent students in Central Queensland highlight the potential of promoting active transportation as a means of increasing physical activity levels of adolescent school goers.
