The annual Vancouver Transportation Survey (VTS) is conducted to better understand your travel behaviour and preferences.
The survey findings help us make better decisions about transportation investments in the city.
What's happeningHelp shape infrastructure investment decisions
RA Malatest & Associates, a market research firm, has been hired to invite past and new participants to complete the annual survey.
The data collected includes metrics such as, but not limited to:
- Mode share (for example getting to work or school by driving, taking transit, cycling, walking, or other)
- Use of car share (for example Evo or Modo)
- Number of trips (for example you had 4 trips in a day if you went to work, to the grocery store, to a restaurant, and then back home)
- Vehicle kilometres travelled (VKT)
- Frequency of working from home
How does it work?
If you choose to participate, you will be enrolled in the survey by answering a few questions about your current travel behaviour and mobility preferences. You will then complete a 1-day trip diary, recording your travel for a single assigned day using an online form.
Information icon Returning participants will receive invitations by email. New participants will be randomly selected by household and sent a letter in the mail. Detailed information about the methodology of the sampling approach and analysis techniques are provided in the technical report.
All participants, 18 years and older, who complete the survey are invited to enter a prize draw with 1-in-30 chance to win one of 110 prizes ranging from $25 to $100.
