Impacts and Use of Devon's Bus Network inc Survey

We have been contacted by Chris Burridge-Barney MPhys (Hons), a Graduate Trainee Transport Planner from Devon County Council. He is being sponsored to undertake a part-time degree in Transportation Planning and Engineering at the University of Southampton. As part of this degree, he is producing a dissertation examining the impacts of Devon’s bus network, including removing barriers to employment, reducing congestion and pollution, and improving physical and mental health (by, for instance, reducing social isolation and providing transport for outdoor leisure trips).
 
Therefore, he is looking for people to complete a Survey, to help him collect data on why people use Devon’s bus network, what they would do if the buses were unavailable, and what impact buses have on users. Clearly, bus patronage levels are significantly reduced at present, but he would like respondents to focus on how they have used buses in ‘normal’ (i.e. pre-COVID) times. This is based on the assumption that the recent changes in travel patterns are likely to be temporary in nature, and so pre-COVID passenger data is likely to be a more robust basis for appraising the typical costs and benefits of the services.
 
Chris would be grateful for any input you can provide as a bus user however frequent or infrequent you use the service.
