This chapter uses a number of UK based case studies to critically discuss young people's participation in transport planning. Whilst the involvement of young people is not widespread, the chapter considers some innovative campaigns led by young people to improve transport services. Using the concept of scale, it also highlights how local opportunities for young people's participation are often influenced and constrained by competing political processes which exist beyond the local. Despite these constraints, examples of local youth led transport campaigns which have ‘jumped scale’, significantly influencing UK central government policy, are critically discussed.
