This paper reviews the relation of patterns of travel to school to concerns about public health, school choice, urban form, and residential housing markets in Sheffield. The results suggest that, while there are high levels of excess commuting, there remains a complex interrelationship between housing and neighbourhood characteristics, school performance, and commuting patterns. There are differences between the pictures for primary schools and secondary schools. Policies aimed at promoting transport efficiency and those promoting school choice are likely to remain in tension
