Strategies for keeping younger people on public transport:

What are the magic tricks to make young people fall madly in love with public transport – and stay faithful throughout their adolescence and adulthood? This is an invite to share your good initiatives targeted at 16-25-year-olds. But also to share the great ideas that failed to meet the target. 

The results of the BEST Survey for 2023 published
