Free Bus Travel for Under 22s – Baseline Travel Survey

Dear Parents/Carers

Do you have a child aged 5-16, or are you a young person aged 12-21? If so, please complete our short travel survey for a chance to win up to £250 in Love2Shop vouchers.

Click here to complete the survey. 


  The Scottish Government will soon be launching the Free Bus Travel Scheme 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.
  We would be grateful if parents/carers of younger children (i.e. those aged 5-16), or young people aged 12-21 themselves, could complete this short travel survey. 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.

There is also the opportunity to take part in our prize draw to win a Love2Shop voucher. There is a top prize of £250, as well as other prizes of £150, £100, and 10 x £50 vouchers to be won. Love2Shop vouchers can be used across a wide range of shops and restaurants, including Currys, Argos, River Island, New Look, PizzaExpress, and more, or they can be exchanged online for other vouchers such as Asos and Primark.  
  The closing date for all responses is 24th January 2022.
