Victorian Integrated Survey of Travel and Activity

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 throughout the year across greater Melbourne, and periodically Geelong and other key regional centres. This allows average daily travel behaviour to be understood.

Randomly selected households are asked to collect their travel data for a single specified day. Collecting all personal travel information - from walking the dog, through to interstate travel - enhances our understanding of complex travel interactions.

The survey has been running since 2007, and a new round of data collection began in February 2022. The new project includes changes to how data is collected and incorporates a GPS component. This will capture a more accurate picture of travel behaviour to help us better plan for Victoria's transport future.

Access to survey data

Data packs, summary dashboards and reports are available on the VISTA data and publications page.
