Transport Scotland is looking to contact young islanders aged between 16 to 18 to gauge their opinion on how they can improve the free ferry travel pass.

Their research aims to better understand young people’s experiences using their NEC/Young Scots card and paper ferry vouchers for travel.

The Young Islander Network coordinates the research and explains: “During the research project, you would be guided through a task-based discussion one to one by a facilitator.

"They will ask you questions about your experience with paper vouchers and take you through a few tasks, including using the Transport Scotland app to see how it can be used to upload ferry vouchers to your digital NEC card.”

The chat will take around 30 minutes to an hour and take place online before Friday, December 9.

When the research is completed, it will be shared with the Transport Scotland’s team designing the new application process.
