Abstract Introduction:<\b>
The aim was to review and categorize parental barriers to active commuting to school. Method: The search was conducted in seven online databases until March of 2017. Five categories of search terms were established: parents, barriers, school, active commuting and children. To determine if the studies met the inclusion criteria, the titles and abstracts were reviewed. The full text of the selected studies was revised by two researchers. Results:<\b>
The electronic search strategy produced 951 studies. After applying the inclusion criteria, we identified 27 eligible studies. The wide variety of barriers reported by parents were classified into 14 categories (e.g. crime-related safety). Moreover, the main parental barriers associated with active commuting to school were distance, traffic safety, crime-related safety, built environment and social support. Regarding quality assessment of the studies included, was evaluated as weak in the global rating. Conclusion:<\b>
The categorization of parental barriers provided is a useful tool to design educational and environmental initiatives to increase active commuting by minimizing the main barriers (i.e., distance, traffic safety, crime-related safety, built environment and social support). Conducting studies in each context to analyse the more relevant barriers is a priority to promote active commuting behaviours. External funding details This study was supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness [DEP2016-75598-R (MINECO/FEDER, UE)], the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport [CAST17/00072] and “I+D+i research staff contract, within the framework of the national youth guarantee system' funded by the Junta de Andalucía and the European Social Fund of the European Union.
