National Travel Survey

Series abstract

The National Travel Survey (NTS) is a series of household surveys designed to provide regular, up-to-date data on personal travel and monitor changes in travel behaviour over time. The first NTS was commissioned by the Ministry of Transport in 1965-1966. Further periodic surveys were carried out in 1972-1973, 1975-1976, 1978-1979 and 1985-1986. Since July 1988 the NTS has been carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) as a continuous survey. The UK Data Archive holds NTS data from 1972 onwards.
