Share your views on travel and transport at the University of Liverpool

The University annual Travel Survey is live for 2024. The survey, which is open to all staff and students, aims to gather information on travel habits, including how people travel to and from the University, how often they travel and what modes of transport they use. The survey will also seek opinions on sustainable travel schemes and initiatives.

The data collected from the surveys will be used to baseline scope 3 carbon emissions associated with travel; this is a critical step towards achieving net zero carbon as part of our strategic framework Liverpool 2031. Scope 3 emissions are those that occur outside of the University’s direct control but are linked to its activities such as business and commuter travel. The surveys will run annually so that we can continually measure progress against this baseline.

The surveys will also help us to identify opportunities to expand and improve sustainable travel services, particularly cycling, walking, and public transport. This will not only reduce our carbon impact but will contribute towards improving the health and wellbeing of our staff and students.

Building on the evidence gathered from last year’s survey, together the surveys will inform the development of a new University Travel Plan for staff and students.

This is your opportunity to have your say on travel and transport at the University, so we strongly encourage you to participate – the surveys should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete and all responses will be anonymous, unless you choose to leave your details so that we can follow up with you.

The surveys are now live and will be open until 13th June 2025. You can complete the survey using this link.
