Statistics & surveys
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency instigated a continuous monitor across New Zealand to assess the impact of COVID-19 on people's transport choices.
The in-field questions started Friday, 3 April 2020 and the monitor will run a minimum of 24 waves. The nationally representative study offers insights into how people respond in their transport choices, their perceptions and attitudes to different modes of transport and how they change under the different COVID-19 Alert Levels.
High level analyses, deep dive analyses and infographics will be published as they become available. Waka Kotahi has also created summarised tables from the COVID-19 impacts on transport research, and released them as open data to enable people to do their own analysis:
