The Effects of Transport Provision on Post-16 Education

Torbay Council has commissioned Transport & Travel Research Ltd (TTR) to study the factors affecting young people’s decisions to enter education after the age of 16 in Torbay.

The study will explore the reasons why young people opt for or against education beyond the age of 16, and consider the part played by the availability of appropriate transport in the decision-making process. The current transport provision will be assessed and recommendations put forward for improving transport services with a view to increasing the uptake of college/school places in the 16-18 year age range. TTR will use a range of market research and other techniques (GIS and accessibility analysis using bus timetable information) during the study.
