Toronto residents are among approximately 1.4 million households in the Greater Golden Horseshoe area receiving invitations to participate in the Transportation Tomorrow Survey (TTS).

Jointly undertaken by 25 funding agencies, including the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, the City of Toronto, the TTC, Metrolinx and other municipalities, the TTS is a voluntary travel study looking at the travel habits and preferences of area residents. Results from this survey will help the City, the TTC and the Province make transportation planning and investment decisions that best serve Torontonian’s wide range of travel patterns and preferences.

Randomly selected households in Toronto will receive an official invitation in the mail informing them they have been selected to participate in a 10- to 15-minute survey. The letter will provide households with a secure access code and more information about the survey.

Households can participate by accessing the project website at or by calling the survey hotline at 1-877-216-7786. Survey questions will focus on trip information for each household member, including origin, destination, time, reason for travel, mode of transportation and some general demographic questions.

Residents that did not make any trips can still participate in the survey, as this helps build a snapshot of the travel patterns of the general population and ensures the survey reflects the characteristics of residents. All survey responses are anonymous and will be combined with other responses to identify travel patterns.

A third-party research firm is conducting the survey, which will run until spring 2023, with the results released in 2024. The Transportation Tomorrow Survey has been administered every five years since 1986.
