Transport Data Surveys project is designed to collect information about the way Western Australians are using the road network across the Perth metropolitan and Peel regions.
Information about the way drivers use the roads will inform the planning for future infrastructure and development.
Ipsos Social Research Institute (Ipsos) is undertaking two surveys on our behalf:
- Perth Area Travel and Household Survey (PATHS); and
- Commercial Vehicles Survey (CVS).
The surveys are voluntary. However, we encourage any household or business selected to take part to ensure that all types and sizes of households and businesses are represented in the results.
Perth Area Travel Household Survey
Ipsos is randomly selecting households to take part in the PATHS study. Households that agree to participate, will be provided with a GPS device/s to carry for five days. Ipsos will then collect the device and discuss travel behaviour for one of those days.
Read the Information Sheet to learn more about the survey, what you can expect if you participate and, how we comply with privacy requirements.
The survey started in May 2018 and is scheduled to conclude in 2022.
Commercial Vehicles Survey
Ipsos is randomly selecting businesses to take part in the Commercial Vehicles Survey.
Businesses that agree to participate will be interviewed and may also be asked to use a GPS device to track vehicle movements over seven days.
The survey started in February 2021 and will be conducted over six months.
