Finnish National Travel Survey

The purpose of the Finnish National Travel Survey is to collect basic data on mobility in Finland. The data is used to enhance mobility opportunities, to improve road safety and to reduce the harmful environmental impacts arising from traffic. The results of the survey provide traffic planners with information on different travel modes and the factors influencing mobility.
