Orbital bus routes…
A rechargeable smart card…
Bus links between villages and park and ride sites…
A workplace parking levy…
Continental-style ‘cars are guests’ streets…
A delivery hub for larger vehicles with onward servicing by small electric vehicles … 

These are just some of the many suggestions made already by York residents and commuters who have completed York Civic Trust’s transport survey.  

Partnering with the York Environment Forum and York Bus Forum, York Civic Trust launched the survey on 2nd September.  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 30th September.

All York residents are encouraged to contribute. You can take part in the survey by visiting:


Commuters into York can take part in a specific survey, which can be found at:


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.

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.” 

As an extra incentive, everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a prize draw, with a chance to win one of three £100 prizes, to be made at random at the end of the survey period.  

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.  

York-based Qa Research has been appointed to lead on the consultation exercise.  

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.

  1. If you think I have already asked this, (I didn’t think I had) then please can you tell me how I get into it? How on earth do you get into the survey?

    1. Thanks for your comment, Chris – and apologies for any difficulties you are having in accessing the survey. We have now sent you a personal email to assist.
