The fifth Urban Transportation Indicators (UTI) Survey is the latest in a series of surveys that have, individually and collectively, provided an important picture of transportation behaviour and trends across Canada’s 33 largest urban areas. In this fifth edition, the UTI was given a major update to account for changing issues and new data sources. Key changes include the introduction of new indicators on health and transportation, economic performance of transportation, and factors that influence mode choice. Readers are still able to make comparisons with 90+ sustainability indicators that were prepared in previous surveys.
The overall goal of this survey program was to build a consistent and reliable database about urban transportation and develop indicators for Canadian municipalities and transportation stakeholders. The UTI Survey Database, which integrates data from the fifth survey as well as previous surveys, is also available in conjunction with this technical report.
