UOW Transport Survey

UOW are carrying out Transport surveys in April 2017 to understand how you access the campus.  These are performed biennially and are used to help us to improve transport facilities for students, staff and visitors. The information gained through past surveys has assisted us to develop a Transport Strategy and has resulted in the implementation of a number of transport improvements.  The Transport surveys involve a head count survey and also a questionnaire survey.  

The head count survey will be conducted from Monday 3rd April until Friday 7th April 2017. The information gained by undertaking this survey is used for assessment and analysis of transport options and services and no personal information is collected as part of undertaking this head count.  The Transport questionnaire survey  for 2017 opened on Tuesday 4th April at 3 pm and closed at 5 pm on Friday 14th April 2017.
