South Of Scotland Transport Survey for Young People

The Workforce Mobility Project would like young people to complete a short five minute survey. This is a great opportunity to highlight the transport and digital barriers and challenges which impact you and your families.

This survey is for all young people, and is asking about all forms of transport, from walking, public transport, personal car use and all points in between. It is also important to hear the voices of young people who might otherwise be ignored, such as young people with disabilities, and their experience of transport in the area.

The Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal (ESESCRD) is made up of a number of projects which  aim to accelerate growth, create new economic opportunities, and meaningful new jobs that will help to reduce inequalities. You can find out more at their website.

One thing that is important to many young people in the area is transport. The Workforce Mobility Project part of ESESCRD aims to identify and mitigate the transport barriers which prevent access to employment or training across the region.

All those who complete the survey (link below) and provide contact details will be included in a prize draw for a £50 Amazon voucher for their region. A prize draw will be completed for each of the regions – Edinburgh, East Lothian, West Lothian, Midlothian, Scottish Borders and Fife.
