Transportation Tomorrow Survey 2011

Every five years, for the past 25 years, the Transportation Tomorrow Survey has surveyed residents in municipalities across southern Ontario about their travel choices and patterns. The information gathered from this major survey plays a vital role in assisting municipalities to plan for future transportation services in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area.

This year, the Transportation Tomorrow Survey will be taking place once again in our community.

Beginning the first week of September, randomly selected households in Halton will be contacted by telephone and asked to participate in the survey. For the first time, households will also be given the option to complete the survey online at External Link.

Households contacted can expect to be asked about their household’s travel patterns, including where the trip originated, destination of the trip, purpose and method of travel. Participants will also be asked about age, gender, employment status, size of household and number of motor vehicles.

All information collected for the survey is used for statistical purposes only and will be kept strictly confidential.

More than 150,000 households from across twenty regional, county and local municipal governments will be participating in the 2011 survey.

If your household is contacted, please take the time to participate in the survey via telephone or online at External Link. Your involvement is critical in assisting Halton Region to plan and keep pace with changing transportation needs in the future.
