York Civic Trust has recently run a major City-wide transport consultation to find out what residents think are the key issues in York and how to tackle them.

Partnering with the York Environment Forum and York Bus Forum, The Trust conducted this survey throughout September 2019.

The surveys asked residents and those commuting into York to work to outline what they feel are current issues with transport in the City, how and why they move around the City and how they would like to see transport changed in the future.  

The results of the surveys of residents, commuters and visitors are now available:

York Transport Local Consultation – Key Findings Report: Residents and Commuters, Nov. 2019

York Local Transport Consultation – Key Findings Report: Visitors’ surveys, Nov. 2019

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


Citizens’ Transport Forum

A Citizens’ Transport Forum, drawn from those who completed the survey, has recently been established to discuss and review the implications of the responses, and to work with the Council as it develops its Plan. A report of the key findings can be downloaded here.


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