The City of Calgary is conducting an important regional transportation study to understand how residents travel around their communities. Your input is important for planners to accurately anticipate future transportation needs for Calgary and the surrounding region.


The My Travel Log study is currently not accepting responses. Thank you for your interest in participating.


We want to hear about your daily transportation habits: How do you travel? How far do you go? Our goal is to get a complete picture of travel behavior in the region to anticipate future transportation needs. The City of Calgary strongly values your participation in this study.

The study is commissioned by The City of Calgary and conducted by research consultants Resource Systems Group (RSG) Inc. Reports from previous surveys, conducted approximately once every 10 years, are available on www.calgary.ca.

About the Survey

What is this survey all about?

We want to learn how, when, where and why people travel in and around the Calgary region. We're asking you to log your travel for one day to help us understand transportation patterns in the region. Our goal is to better plan for future improvements in your community.

Why should I participate?

Your participation ensures that households like yours are represented in our regional transportation plans. Your input has a big impact because only a limited number of households are invited to participate in the study.

How was I selected to participate?

Invited households were selected at random from the greater Calgary region.

Completing the Survey

What do I get for participating?

After reporting your travel by going online or calling the study phone number, your household will receive one Amazon.ca gift card or cheque as thanks for your participation. Everyone who lives with you must participate to receive a gift card for your household.

Should I participate if I stayed home on my travel day?

Yes, you should still participate! Any amount of travel (including no travel) is valuable information for the study. Don't forget that short trips, such as walking the dog, count too.

What if my transportation habits during the study aren't my "typical" habits?

That's no problem - we still encourage you to participate. We'll also ask how you typically travel.

Who in my household should participate?

Everyone living in your household on your assigned travel day. All trips taken on the assigned day should be recorded on the travel logs (enclosed). We ask that a parent or guardian complete the follow-up survey for children under age 17.

Should my children participate? Why?

Yes, trips to and from school, sports practices, play dates and other activities are important for planners to understand how our transportation system can be improved to meet the needs of all users including children.

Why do you need to know when I travel, where I work or where my children go to school?

Getting to and from work or school is a common reason people travel. It is important to know how these types of trips relate to the travel choices people make so that planners can understand citizen’s transportation needs and their demands on the transportation system.
