Thank you for your participation in the 2016 household travel survey.
The City of London conducts a Household Travel Survey every five years as part of our Transportation Master Plan update. It is a survey which helps us understand the travel habits of residents in the London area. The survey collects travel and demographic information about the household.
In 2016 a household survey was conducted, participants were asked about all trips made in a 24 hour window by every member of the household (age 14 and over), including trip origin, destination, mode and purpose. To conclude the survey, participants were asked about their attitudes towards transportation in the city of London.The data has been utilized as part of the update to the City’s Transportation Network Forecast Model. It was also used to support the planning of transportation infrastructure and service improvements over the short, medium and long term. Similar household travel surveys were conducted by the City in 2002 and 2009. The previous surveys were conducted over the phone, while the primarily mode of data collection for this survey was Internet based.
The survey resulted in a sample of 3% of households in the City and 2% in the London CMA, for a total of 5,700 completed surveys. To achieve this result, an invitation letter was distributed to over 40,000 households, which have been demographically controlled to ensure a representative sample.
All information collected will be kept completely confidential and protected under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, and will only be used anonymously to represent travel patterns. Names and addresses will be destroyed at the end of the study, and all other personal information will be anonymized.
