Thank you for your interest in the Saskatoon Household Travel Survey. The survey administration period is now complete.
The 2023 Saskatoon Household Travel Survey is a voluntary household travel survey that collects information about daily travel. Survey participants are asked about each member of their household's (over the age of 5) travel on the previous weekday. Post-secondary students living in residence or in a roommate situation only answer for themselves, not the household.
Yes. The City of Saskatoon is undertaking this initiative to learn more about how residents get around the City. The City of Saskatoon mailed letters to randomly selected households inviting them to participate in the survey either by telephone, or online.
To survey specific sub-groups, the City has handed out post cards on board Saskatoon Transit, randomly selecting transit users to participate in the survey. The City has also invited a random selection of University of Saskatchewan students to participate in the survey.
Participation in the survey is voluntary.
The first two sections of the survey contain questions about your household and the people living in your household. The final section asks questions about the trips taken by each member of your household that is 5 years of age or older on a particular weekday (your Travel Day). Post-secondary students living in residence or in a roommate situation only have to answer for themselves, not the household.

You can participate in two ways:
Please note, our survey interviewers may call selected households, who have not already completed the survey, on weeknights between 5 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. CT and Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT. We will only be calling households with a listed phone number from the white pages that was matched to the address we have on file. If you received a letter inviting you to participate, we would encourage you to do the survey online or please call us, in case we cannot call you.
You will know that you have contributed to a vitally important research study. The last survey was conducted more than 10 years ago, and much has changed since then, so your contribution makes a difference!
