Project: Calgary Continuous Travel Survey
Client: NuStats, Austin, Texas
Description: NuStats, a major market research company based in Austin, Texas, has been responsible for the design and conduct of many large-scale travel surveys in North America. They have recently been appointed by the City of Calgary (Canada) to conduct Transportation Surveys for the City of Calgary. Part of this project is to investigate the feasibility of conducting continuous travel surveys in Calgary after the conduct of the upcoming survey. Because of the ground-breaking work undertaken by TUTI in the design and conduct of various types of "continuous" travel surveys (e.g. VATS, PARTS, SEQTS and VISTA), they have been sub-contracted to provide specialist advice to NuStats on various aspects of continuous travel surveys. The Calgary project will run from 2010 through 2011.
