Combined Authority Transport Chair Cllr Keith Wakefield said:

�We�re pleased over 4,000 questionnaires have already been completed but we still want to hear from more young people. This is a huge chance for everyone to get involved in shaping West Yorkshire�s transport systems for the next 20 years so we want to hear people�s long-term views and suggestions.

�It just takes a few minutes to take part online at www.yourtravelyoursay.co.uk. or there are the drop-in events where the Your Travel Your Say team will be on hand to answer any questions.

Regular updates and reminders on when and where the remaining drop-in sessions are taking place continue to be posted on social media. Twitter:@yrtravelyrsayand@WestYorkshireCA and Facebook Yourtravelyoursay as well as at www.yourtravelyoursay.co.uk.

Leeds City Council has also invited everyone in the city to �join in the conversation� on the future of transport in Leeds and to take part in an online survey at www.leeds.gov.uk/transportconversation.

The �conversation� began following the government�s decision to turn down the proposed New Generation Transport (NGT) scheme for Leeds in May, but with �173.5million of funding for the scheme being retained to invest in transport in the city.

The Council wants to find out how people currently use the transport network in Leeds, what they think of it and what the priorities should be in terms of future investment.
