Welcome to the Data Management Group

PLEASE NOTE: The location of our Data Retrieval Systems has changed. Please update your bookmarks here.

Founded in 1988, the Data Management Group is the custodian of the data sets derived from the Transportation Tomorrow Surveys (TTS) on urban travel conducted every five years since 1986. The 1986 and 1991 data files contain detailed information on over 500,000 trips in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area. The survey area has expanded through the years and the latest survey, 2016 TTS, contains over 790,000 trips in South Central Ontario from Waterloo Region to Peterborough County. These data sets form the factual basis for virtually every transportation planning study carried out in the area by and for local, regional and provincial agencies. In addition, the data sets form the empirical base for a wide variety of research projects.

The computer systems at this research centre support remote access to a set of computer programs and data files in support of a large scale simulation of the road and transit system in the Toronto and Hamilton areas. The result is a sharing of information and analysis framework between the participants, their consultants and the research community.




The Transportation Tomorrow Survey (TTS) is a comprehensive travel survey conducted in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) once every five years.
