Nexus, the public body which delivers public transport services, is to conduct its biggest ever survey to find out how people get around in Tyne and Wear.

Nexus is contacting 200,000 households from today, Monday 19 March, with its big survey, which can be filled in online here.

The feedback will help Nexus with the planning and development of the important transport services that it delivers on behalf of the North East Combined Authority.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and comprises a list of 50 questions which analyse how and why people choose certain modes of travel.

Philip Meikle, Transport Strategy Director at Nexus, said: “We welcome this opportunity to capture the views of people who use all different modes of travel around Tyne and Wear.

“Our mission is to plan public transport services for the future, which will support and improve the North East’s environment, economy and communities - the feedback from this survey will help us to do this.

“This is a great chance for us to hear from people who choose not to use public transport, because their views are just as important as those of the people who do use bus and Metro services as we plan for the years ahead.

”This is the biggest survey we have ever conducted about local journeys and I hope as many people as possible will take the time to fill it in – whether or not they use public transport.

Anyone who fills in the survey could win a £100 prize. For more information go to
