What Moves Everett Schools

To understand the Everett, Massachusetts Public School Community's to and from school commutes and how the city could improve them, Green Streets was hired in Spring 2023 by the Everett Planning Department to conduct this groundbreaking study examining the commuting habits of the Everett School District. 


  • Survey: Green Streets surveyed the Everett School District’s K-12 students (the city already had data on how faculty and staff commute) about the ways in which they travel to and from school. We also asked them how they would like to travel, and what stops them from doing so. 

  • In-Depth Conversations: Green Streets recorded video conversations with 19 Everett students, faculty and staff, and parents and guardians about their commutes to school. 

  • Final Report: This report includes quantitative survey findings, qualitative video conversation findings, along with data collection methodology.
