Local people are being encouraged to take part in the Hereford Travel Survey.

As of Wednesday 27 April, the survey is now live and will run until Wednesday 25 May. It is open to anyone aged 16 and over who lives or works in the county.

The survey, which is required as part of the Department for Transport Access Fund, will seek to provide data on changes to travel patterns, including changes during and post-pandemic, and the impact of more widespread home working.

The data will support future travel and transport planning and will be shared with the Department for Transport. The survey also includes three questions on Climate, to gain insight into people’s levels of interest and engagement. These questions will be repeated annually to track changes, and will be published on the consultation page.

Cllr John Harrington, Cabinet member for Infrastructure and Transport, said: “We want people to tell us about their everyday journeys, about what matters to them. The feedback we receive will help to inform future travel schemes and infrastructure, as well as how we promote active, sustainable modes of travel, so I encourage everybody to take part and have their say.”

You can complete the survey at Herefordshire.gov.uk/travelsurvey.
