School Travel Survey for East Renfrewshire schools

East Renfrewshire Council have recently launched a School Travel Survey for East Renfrewshire schools – – and we would be keen for you to get involved.

The survey differs from the recent Employee Travel Survey as it is aimed at parents/guardians, pupils, school staff and local communities. This provides an opportunity for people to share views on school travel and comment on initiatives, incentives or improvements that may encourage more walking and cycling to school. The platform also includes an interactive map to help us identify specific issues, barriers or opportunities getting to and from school.

An initial deadline for feedback is 29 May 2019, however, the platform will be open throughout 2019 to assist with future planning.
