Missing Million Policy Paper 2: Transport barriers to youth employment

Missing Million Policy Paper 2: Transport barriers to youth employment

14 December 2012

Rising transport costs are making it difficult for thousands of young people to participate in education and training, leaving many unable to enter or stay in work. This is particularly the case for young people living in rural areas who find it harder to stay in work due to inadequate public transport routes from their homes. It can also prevent young people from accessing further education and training opportunities - around one fifth of young people who want to take part in education or training say that transport costs are a barrier to their participation. This report reveals how transport barriers are especially problematic for those in part-time or temporary work, those living or working in remote locations and those who have to travel long distances.
