Survey for Montreal commuters
The biggest public survey on the way commuters travel around the Greater Montreal Area was launched by the Agence Métropolitaine de Transport (AMT) on Thursday.
The survey will ask 80 000 households about their weekly commuting habits, whether they drive or take public transit.
The AMT says this will paint a better picture of the population's needs and help them develop future projects and policies.
"Our objective is to help adapt our transportation projects and policies to the real needs of Montrealers," Nicolas Girard, President and CEO of the AMT, told CJAD.
But survey results are only expected in 2015.
The survey will be available online and by phone until December 21 and participants will be randomly selected. Those selected will be contacted by Léger Marketing.
Transport Quebec, the STM, along with the Laval and Longueil transit corporations are partnering with the AMT for the survey.
