Staff Travel Survey 2018 - 19th November to Sunday 9th December 2018 - [SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED]

The Staff Travel Survey 2018 is now live for your chance to win one of our fantastic prizes and help the development of the University travel plan.‌

This year you can win five £100, five £50, five £20 or ten £10 vouchers from Ethical Superstore where you can buy a huge variety of products.

The University of Bristol Travel Plan is now well established and the University carries out a staff travel survey every two years. The survey enables us to take account of current opinions, and the results enable us to monitor shifts in travel patterns and determine our transport policies and how money is spent.

University staff are encouraged to take part in the survey as it is important to have as many respondents as possible. Our future decisions could affect you. Previous staff travel survey results are summarised on our Travel Surveys pages.‌
