An online public transport survey is available now at https://online1.snapsurveys.com/s/t6qsia.

The 10-minute survey looks at the length of journeys, modes of transport and reasons for travel. All answers are confidential.

Cllr Paul Garner, spokesperson for the environment said: “The survey will help us plan ahead in looking at where our transport priorities should be. Covid has changed dramatically how we get about locally and by completing this survey we can better understand how people’s lives have changed and what we need to invest in.”

Similar surveys have been done since 2008 and the council says that knowing more about how travel habits have changed will help plan the network for the future.
