WG4-Household travel surveys

Ways into a harmonized database

Several COST Countries have established traditions in household transport surveys, which are often influenced by cultural, geographic and administrative backgrounds of the individual country. Often, these surveys have proven useful within the borders of the individual country, while on the other hand, there are
comparability problems over the national borders due to differences in methodology, definitions and contents.

Finally, guidelines and recommendations shall be discussed: How can future surveys be implemented to ensure continuity and usefulness in the individual countries on one hand and a higher level of harmonization on the other hand?
