Before and after household travel surveys for travel behaviour change project evaluation

This paper describes the procedures used in the conduct of before and after household travel surveys in March 2004 and March 2005. The survey methodology was based on a self completion one-day travel diary questionnaire. This questionnaire was personally delivered to sampled households two days before their designated travel day and personally collected one day after their travel day. On the evening before their travel day, households were phoned to remind them of their travel day and to motivate them to complete the survey. The paper describes the survey methodology, and provides details of the procedural outcomes of the before and after surveys. Response rates of 51 percent and 65 percent were obtained in the before and after surveys, respectively.
