Victoria road (Sydney) travel survey, 1977

Detailed information on travel patterns and traveller attitudes in corridors or subareas of cities is often required to aid in planning and in assessing the effects of local land use or transport system changes. The required travel data cannot be obtained from broad metropolitan wide transport studies and necessitates that special purpose travel surveys be conducted. An on board, reply post paid travel survey was conducted in Victoria road, Sydney, to assess the impact of a combined car pooling/ transit lane scheme. This report documents the survey procedure and the results of the preliminary analysis of the data. The major findings are that: the survey method is an effective means of collecting travel data at the corridor level; and, car travellers in this corridor are insensitive to travel time incentives, are captive to the car and are likely to be more influenced in their travel behaviour by workplace, such as parking supply.
