A survey is underway to learn about bus use by those aged 22 and under.

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 five 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 which has been lauched asks about current travel behaviour, and service users 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.

The closing date for all responses is January 24.
