This topic collects information for up to three methods of travel to work on Census day, and is applicable to employed people aged 15 years and over. The data collected from this topic is widely used at the small area level for transport planning, complementing data collected from the workplace address (journey to work) topic.


A question on this topic was asked for the first time in the 1976 Census. It has been repeated in all subsequent Censuses with slight modifications. Since the 2001 Census the response categories of light rail and truck have been added.


The following question is from the paper 2016 Census Household Form.
