The Household Travel Survey (HTS) collects information on personal travel behaviour. The study area is the Sydney Greater Metropolitan Area (GMA) and forms the geographic scope of the survey. The area covered by the GMA includes Sydney, Illawarra and the Hunter. All residents of occupied private dwellings within this area are considered in scope of the survey and are randomly selected to participate.
The HTS is conducted every day of the year and has been running continuously since 1997/98. Each year approx. 5,000 households are selected to participate. Data is collected on all trips made over a 24-hour period. Surveys are conducted using face-to-face interviews and each member of the household is included.
HTS data is available by Region, Statistical Area Level 3 (SA3) or Local Government Area (LGA). LGA Data is only available from 2016/17 onwards.
