With this chapter I seek to address this gap and enhance the academic literature on young people’s and young adults’ physical mobility, with particular reference to the transport and social inclusion debate and from an intergenerational and lifecourse perspective. I provide a critical examination of the generational nature of mobility cultures, practices, needs and constraints emerging from the situated experiences of young age, and show how these can affect young people’s life opportunities, choices and participation in further learning and employment. To this end, I will use selected key findings from a qualitative research study I carried out in 2014 with a cross-section of young people in Bristol, funded by the University of the West of England through an early career research grant scheme.
