Professor Eric Miller, Interim Chair, Department of Civil Engineering, University of Toronto and Director, Joint Program in Transportation made a presentation entitled "Travel Behavior in the GTA - Trends and Prospects".

Professor Miller's presentation was based on the findings from the Transportation Tomorrow Survey (TTS) which has been carried out on a 5-year cycle since 1986. The TTS involves a telephone interview survey of a random sampling of 5% of the households in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and surrounding area of Central Ontario (approximately 150,000 households). The results are used to form a comprehensive picture of travel in the survey area. The TTS has been conducted as an ongoing partnership arrangement between the Province and 18 municipalities and agencies, and the University of Toronto. Since its inception in 1986, the Data Management Group (DMG) of the University of Toronto has undertaken management responsibility for all TTS surveying and data management. The TTS survey was expanded progressively in 1996, 2001 and 2006 to include the Regional Municipalities of Niagara and Waterloo, the counties of Wellington, Simcoe and Victoria and Peterborough, the Cities of Guelph, Barrie and Peterborough and the Town of Orangeville and the City of Brantford. The 1996, 2001 and 2006 surveys are three of the largest travel surveys ever undertaken anywhere.
