In Kyrgyzstan, this figure was 4.3 kilometers, and in India, it was 3.8 kilometers. Turkey ranked at 3.6 kilometers. Germany and Russia had an average walking distance of 2.6 kilometers for children, while in the United Kingdom, it was 2.2 kilometers, and in the United States, children walked the least, with an average of 1.6 kilometers.

Findmykids Country Manager Neşen Yücel stated, “Through our measurements of when children are most active globally and in Turkey, we observed that children spend a significant amount of time on the road going to and from school. Children globally spend 17% of this time walking and 12% in a vehicle. In Turkey, children spend 20.3% of their active hours on the roads. This is a noteworthy period, and it is important for parents to guide their children in utilizing this time.”

This rate is quite high compared to rates in Russia (5.5%), Germany (5.1%), the United Kingdom (5%), and the United States (3.7%).”
