If you have any queries please contact Elaine Wilson-Smith at or on 0131 677 5522. Thank you.

About the Survey

  The Scottish Government, in partnership with the Improvement Service, the National Entitlement Card Programme Office and Young Scot, will soon be launching Free Bus Travel for young people between the ages of 5 and 21. This aims to encourage greener travel patterns, and increase opportunities for young people to engage in employment, education and social activities and not be excluded due to travel costs.

  Transport Scotland will monitor the scheme as it progresses to check on use and impact. The first step is to try and understand current travel patterns so that any changes after the scheme is introduced can be identified.

  The questionnaire asks about current travel behaviour, and your thoughts about bus travel generally and the free bus travel. This should take no more than 10 minutes to do, and you need to live in Scotland.

  Contact Us:   If you have any questions about the work or problems completing the questionnaire, please contact our Project Manager, Elaine Wilson-Smith, at   or on 0131 677 5522.
