Consultation description

Department for Transport is seeking views on options for changing and improving the collection of short walks data for the National Travel Survey.

Currently National Travel Survey walking data is collected from respondents using a 7 day travel diary. Following an experiment in 2013 it was discovered that short walks under 1 mile were under-reported. We are looking at ways to address this issue.
