Starting in fall of 2017, a team of researchers at the University of Toronto will be recruiting individuals to participate in a smartphone-based data collection project. This project, more broadly, is designed to prepare for a transition away from primarily landline-based surveys for collection of resident travel data in the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) and move towards a mix of web, smartphone, in-person, and big data collection.
YOUR input is needed so that we can test the feasibility and real-world potential of next-generation tools and approaches. The current TTS (Transportation Tomorrow Survey) has remained essentially the same since its launch in 1986, but changes are required to deal with decreased use of telephone landlines and make the most of the potential offered by new technologies.
We hope you will agree to participate and do not hesitate to email or call if you have any questions!
