2019 Greater Hobart Household Travel Survey

The Department of State Growth is conducting the 2019 Greater Hobart Household Travel Survey to look at how, where, why and when people in Greater Hobart are travelling.

Around 4,700 households across Greater Hobart have been randomly selected to complete the two-day travel survey, with the data collected being used to provide the Department with information about daily travel patterns, including methods of travel, times of travel and purposes of travel.

This data will be used to make planning decisions about roads, public transport and other infrastructure and facilities.

A pilot survey will be held in February, with the main survey to run between May and June 2019.

A Greater Hobart Household Travel Survey was last conducted in Tasmanian in 2008-09. Key findings from the survey can be found here: Greater Hobart Household Travel Survey 2008-09
