Public Works Transportation For Residents Planning - Transportation Information and Data

Transportation Information and Data

Transportation Tomorrow Survey (TTS)

The Transportation Tomorrow Survey collects information on the demographics (age, gender, etc.) and travel choices and preferences of people who live in the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area.

The TTS happens every 5 years. Peel Region has been participating in the surveys since 1986, along with the Ministry of Transportation Ontario, GO Transit, the Toronto Transit Commission, and 18 municipalities in the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

Transportation Tomorrow Survey data:

  • Helps us determine our long-range planning.
  • Serves as major source of the Travel Demand Forecasting model update.
  • Prompts changes to current policies or the development of new policies.
  • Tells us which transportation facilities and programs need to be improved.

Data Collection

The survey process starts with a letter being mailed to randomly selected households. This letter tells the residents that a professional interviewer will call to ask a few questions about their travel choices and preferences.

During the phone survey, the interviewer gathers "trip data" of household members over 11 years of age. The survey aims to find out how, where and where trips were made on weekdays.

Note: A "trip" is any one-way journey from one location to another by foot, bicycle or motorized vehicle. For walking, the interviewer collects only information on trips to and from work or school.)
