Victorian Integrated Survey of Travel and Activity (VISTA)

The Victorian Integrated Survey of Travel and Activity (VISTA) is an ongoing survey of household travel activity.

A detailed picture of Victorian household travel is collected through VISTA to help the government make better transport and land-use planning decisions.

The survey is conducted across Greater Melbourne, Geelong and, periodically, in selected regional centres.

Data is collected across the year and combined to form two-year datasets. This allows average daily travel behaviour to be measured.

Randomly selected households are asked to complete the VISTA travel diary for a single specified day. By collecting all personal travel information - from walking the dog, through to interstate travel - the results enhance our understanding of complex travel interactions.

Further information about the latest survey, and fact sheets on survey findings are available on the VISTA data and publications page.

Surveys were also conducted in the 2007-08 and 2009-10 financial years. Summary data from these two surveys as well as some reports produced using this data is available on the VISTA data and publications page.
