The UTSG Electronic Mailing List

An Email based mailing list has been established by the Universities Transport Study Group (UTSG). The list provides an electronic discussion forum and information resource for researchers in the field of transport primarily, but not exclusively, in the academic community.

The list was established in October 1993, and has a steadily growing membership, including researchers in all continents of the World.

The aim of the list is to facilitate information sharing, (e.g. news of new research, conferences, seminars and workshops) and to promote links, collaborative working, joint problem-solving and mutual support. Depending on the level of usage of the list and on demand, sub-lists may be set up in the future for special interests or particular types of information.

The list is administered by the Institute for Transport Studies, University of Leeds. It is one of several hundred lists managed by the JISCmail facility funded by the Higher and Further Education Councils of the UK.

Dear colleagues,

I'd like to let you know about the final report from the Transport to Thrive project entitled “Why we shouldn’t ignore the transport needs of young people".

The report finds 16-24-year-olds made 21% fewer trips compared to 25-64-year-olds in 2019 and this gap has widened over the past 20 years. At the stage in life when young people should be developing themselves, poor transport provision is preventing them from accessing life-defining opportunities.
It presents new analyses of national travel data, combined with insights from in-depth interviews with young people leaving school and college. Transport to Thrive was a [...]
