Hey mum, dad, drive your teenager to ExCel

In the post today was a glossy leaflet inviting 15-24 year olds, plus their parents/carers if they wanted, to visit London's biggest careers and skills event at the ExCel Exhibition Space. Organised by London First and Prospects, supported by Apprenticeships and the Mayor of London (who recently paid for the underused Cable Car to ExCel), the fair features employers such as Crossrail, Network Rail, NHS London, Transport for London plus many more.

As you can imagine, the organisers and supporters of such an important event for young people go out of their way to promote public transport or cycling as the ideal way to get to this venue, which has excellent public transport links and a cycling superhighway right by it. 

In your dreams.
