The urban primary school travel in China is the necessary life behavior in the family daily life. For the adjustment of the urban population structure and the diversification of the transport means, as well as the unbalance public education resources and the school choice behavior, there are large spatial-temporal differences among the family’s school travel modes, all of the factors above cause the unsuitable of the urban primary school layout method which is only dependent on the service radius and the thousand people index. Combining the travel behavior with the layout of the urban primary school is one of the leading directions to improvement the urban primary school planning (Zhang,2014). Xi’an is the dominant city in the northwest area in China. The types of the urban primary school in Xi’an is multiple, and the city also concentrates more excellent educational resources and students enrollment. The paradox between the pupil number and the land area, and the spatial-temporal accessibility of the school travel issues become more fierce. This paper takes Xi’an as the example and analyzes the school travel constraint mechanism based on the summarization of the urban primary school travel characteristics, as well as doing the basic job for the future study which is to optimize the urban primary school layout from the perspective of the urban land and transportation integration.
