The Paper reports on a particular survey carried out on the passenger ferry services of the Brisbane River, Australia. Further details of the work are given in another paper by Pretty and Grigg referenced below. The project team was required, among other things, to find out the origins and destinations of passengers and their access and egress modes. There are 11 regular services for passengers (two carry motor vehicles as well) plying the Brisbane River for up to 18 hours a day, six or seven days a week. In a typical week in 1975 there were nearly 40,000 passengers, so the task of carrying out a comprehensive survey was a formidable one. A technique is described for obtaining nearly a 100 per cent return rate for a day's operations on a public transport service.
