Commuter Survey

We're exploring new ways to help Londoners have easier, more affordable, and greener commuters. Tell us what matters to you!

The City of London is engaging with employers and employees in targeted areas of the City to assess the potential viability of a Transportation Management Association as one possible solution to help more Londoners choose cheaper, less stressful, greener commutes.

Most Londoners drive alone to work, and the City recognizes that there are often barriers preventing them from using a different option that may be less stressful, more cost effective, and more sustainable.

Many other Canadian cities have implemented Transportation Management Associations, which help businesses pool resources to support sustainable commuting options, such as carpooling, transit, cycling, walking, and working from home.



If you are an EMPLOYER

Tell us how transportation options, parking and traffic affect your employees and your organization:


If you are an EMPLOYEE

Tells us how transportation options, parking and traffic affect your budget, your daily commute, and your overall well-being:

NOTE:

We appreciate the initial feedback we received around the employee survey. We’ve made some improvements to help clarify why we are looking for input, and to improve some of the questions in the survey.



Background

The City of London, in partnership with other employers in London, is conducting a feasibility study to determine interest and need in forming a Transportation Management Association (TMA), or similar collaborative opportunities. A TMA is a group of employers in a similar geographic area that pool their resources and needs to support employees using sustainable transportation options for commuting (e.g. carpooling, transit, walking, cycling).

There are many options for how a TMA is governed and operates, and a TMA can be structured to serve the needs of different types of commuters.

How can a TMA help employers?

  • increased employee access and retention
  • reduced parking costs and demand
  • supporting a positive impact on the environment

How can a TMA help employees?

  • increased access to employment
  • reduced personal transportation costs
  • integrating physical activity into time already spent commuting

This study will also support London’s upcoming Climate Emergency Action Plan, which targets zero greenhouse emissions for 2050. Not only is commuting by car a major household expense, it is also a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. In 2018, gasoline for personal vehicles accounted for over half (51%) of the average London household's greenhouse gas emissions.

These surveys will help inform the feasibility study, by telling us how transportation options, parking and traffic affect local employees and their commutes.
