TRavelVU is a digital travel survey method. It is cheaper than data gathering through traditional methods and delivers more accurate and more reliable results.
Because of the low price, data can also be collected more often and over longer time periods, giving a better understanding of travel behaviour in different conditions (e.g. seasons, different days for the same person, etc).
TRavelVU relies on sensors in smartphones to collect travel survey data and provides a user interface which allows respondents to check, confirm or correct the route they travelled.
TRavelVU makes it possible to monitor and evaluate transport projects and policy goals in a new way. By understanding travel – even better than we do today with traditional travel survey methods – we can support local authorities in helping their citizens to avoid journeys, shift to more sustainable modes and evaluate transport projects.
TRavelVU particularly provides improved data on cycling and pedestrian trips, including valuable data on where people walk and cycle for which there is essentially no data today. It also provides a fuller picture of how individuals travel (rather than just a single day of data) which can help understand the reasons that people opt for unsustainable modes and encourage them to choose more sustainable options.
