Media Opportunity: Dalhousie University Transportation Collaboratory launches HaliTRAC public survey on transportation sustainability
Building on the success of their 2018 NovaTRAC survey, the Dalhousie University Transportation Collaboratory (DalTRAC), in partnership with Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), are once again looking to understand residents’ travel behaviours and characteristics. Lead by Dr. Ahsan Habib, the most recent survey, which will be distributed to approximately 30,000 randomly selected homes across HRM, will collect information regarding households' daily travel activities including travel times, destinations, reasons for travel, transportation means and more. Information collected will provide the DalTRAC research team and HRM with a better understanding of residents’ travel activities and will help guide long-term transportation planning and investment decisions within the municipality.
Dr. Habib is available this week to discuss the survey and his team’s research further.
