Free buses in the city centre; an under 25 public transport card; a fuller network of cycle routes; promoting ebikes …

Many more suggestions like these have now come from those who have completed York Civic Trust’s transport survey. 

The survey, designed to find out what residents and commuters think are the key issues in York and how to tackle them, will run until the end of today, 30th September, so you have a limited time in which to contribute.

You can take part in the survey by visiting: https://surveys.qaresearch.co.uk/YorkTransportResidents.asp

Commuters into York can take part in a specific survey which can be found at: https://surveys.qaresearch.co.uk/YorkTransportCommuters.asp

The responses to the survey will feed into the Council’s new Local Transport Plan, work on which is expected to be started next year.

A Citizens’ Transport Forum, drawn from those who complete the survey, will be established to discuss and review the implications of the responses, and to work with the Council as it develops its Plan.   

Professor Tony May, Chair of the Trust’s dedicated Transport Advisory Group, commented: “We are delighted to have had so many ideas already for the future of transport in York.  We would like to see as many people as possible take part in the survey so we can get a wide range of feedback on transport issues facing everyone who lives and works in the City.

“Transport is one of the key challenges, and opportunities, for York in the future and we so if you have ideas to offer, or don’t agree with those which we have received to date, do please complete the survey.”

This consultation is funded by York Civic Trust, The National Lottery Community Fund, the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund, York Environment Forum, York Bus Forum and York BID.
