16-18 COLLEGE/YOUNG PEOPLE TRAVEL SURVEY

18 Apr

16-18 COLLEGE/YOUNG PEOPLE TRAVEL SURVEY

I am writing to inform you that South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) is carrying out research, in partnership with selected schools, sixth forms and colleges, over a 2 week period from Monday 18 April until Friday 29 April.

The Audience

Around 9,500 16-18 year olds attending Thomas Rotherham College, Doncaster College, Barnsley College, Longley Park 6th Form and Notre Dame school will be asked to fill in a short survey that will help SYPTE to understand the current travel behaviour of our younger customers and where they find information relating to public transport, modes and the tickets that they use.

The Aim of the Survey

  • To ensure young people are aware of the range of value-for-money travel options available for their age group, in addition to the child concessionary fare.
  • To find out their views on any barriers to using public transport.
  • To determine what they think are the benefits or restrictions in using and applying for their 16-18 pass.
  • To understand travel patterns and any barriers to using public transport e.g. length of journey/travel time.

Please find attached a copy of the survey for your information.  College_Young_people_survey_final version (3)

The results of the research will help inform the organisation’s youth ticketing plan and help us to meet the needs of, and better communicate with, our younger customers in the future.

 If you have a family member, or know a friend with a student aged 16-18 at the schools and colleges we are working with, please encourage them to help shape travel for young people by taking part in our research.  Participants will be entered into a prize draw to win £200 Meadowhall vouchers.

Search is on for Women of Steel as statue unveiling announced

The much-anticipated Sheffield Women of Steel statue will be unveiled on Friday 17 June – and the search is on to ensure that as many as possible of the city’s wartime heroines will be there to see it.
Specially produced medallion

The day will be even more memorable for the women who worked in the steelworks during two world wars, because each of them will be presented with a specially produced medallion as an additional thank you from the people of the city.

One side of the medallion has a picture of the statue and the other is engraved: “With thanks to our wartime Women of Steel from the people of Sheffield”.
All the surviving women who worked in the steel works during the two world wars will qualify for the medallion, as well as the families of those who are no longer with us.

Application forms for the medallion are available from the receptions of the Town Hall and The Sheffield Star and online from www.sheffield.gov.uk/womenofsteel and the Star website.
