Wales National Travel Survey

Transport for Wales is working with Welsh Government to develop a National Travel Survey for Wales.

The survey will collect data on travel attitudes and behaviour from people living in Wales. It will comprise a survey questionnaire and a travel diary. The National Travel Survey will be representative of and accessible to the people of Wales and be delivered bilingually in Welsh and English.

The data collected will allow progress towards targets set out in Llwybr Newdd: The Wales Transport Strategy and Net Zero Wales to be tracked. It will inform decision making and improve the transport evidence base in Wales, enabling us to have a better understanding of our users’ needs.

Transport for Wales has engaged the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) to provide support with survey design and development. Two survey pilots will be undertaken in Spring and Summer 2024, with full data collection starting at the end of the year.
