Young People and (Public) Transport

Our Vision
  • Our vision is for a Victorian Community that
    values and provides opportunity, participation,
    justice and equity for all young people
  •  YACVic actively works towards this vision as the
    peak body and leading policy advocate on young
    peoples issues in Victoria

  • Importance of transport to young people and the
    many benefits it has for them and the broader
    community
  • Young peoples experience of using public
    transport and some of the public space issues
    that lie behind their use
  • Public transport timetabling, and accessibility
    and those impacts on young peoples usage
  • Explore some solutions, particularly solutions
    that young people have identified

Nature of Young Peoples Use
  • Young People (12-25) are big users of PT
  • For many young people
  • transport public transport
  • The rely on it more than most other groups
  • Transport (and therefore public transport) raises
    its head at every meeting that we have with/about
    young people
  • It impacts on many (every) aspect of their lives

Importance of PT for young people
  • Beyond the reliance on pt for school, work and
    recreation
  • Young peoples use of pt fosters a growing sense
    of independence
  • Importance of navigating the world on your terms
  • Lack of transport options inhibit ability to
    access services confidentially (same sex
    attracted yp, mental health services, sexual
    health etc)
  • Benefits for the Boarder community of yps
    mobility

Young Peoples Experience of using PT
