City to launch "Kingston Moves" Household Travel Survey
September 16, 2019 -
The City officially launches Kingston Moves, its Household Travel Survey, today. This voluntary survey selects households at random to report on their travel within the city over a 24-hour period. The data gathered through the Kingston Moves survey will inform future planning of the City's transportation system and services.
"Residents who participate in the Kingston Moves survey are helping to shape our transportation future," says Ian Semple, Director, Transportation Services Department. "Having an understanding of how, where and why residents are travelling within Kingston is invaluable as we work towards achieving Council's strategic priority to improve walkability, roads and transportation in our city."
The Kingston Moves survey is being administered on behalf of the City of Kingston by R.A. Malatest & Associates, an independent research firm with extensive experience in municipal and regional travel surveys.
Households that are selected to participate will receive a letter in the mail from Mayor Paterson. This letter provides more detail on the survey as well as the household's unique participant ID. The survey can be completed by phone or online at www.KingstonMoves.ca.
Selected households that complete the survey will be entered into a draw to win a cash prize of $500 or one of 60 $25 e-gift certificates.
