Employer Transit Subsidy Study

Description: This collection contains anonymized survey data collected in three waves from employees of seven downtown Vancouver hotel workers. The questionnaire collected data on commute behaviour, including mode choice for the most recent commute to and from work, employment, quality of life and demographics. As part of an experimental study, differential transit subsidies were offered to workers at some hotels between the survey waves. The three survey waves were conducted in March 2018 (n=774), September 2018 (n=905) and March 2019 (n=902). The collections consists of 3 SPSS-format Data Files, 3 excel-format Variable Keys and 3 pdf-format Questionnaires. In order to protect the anonymity of respondents, some variables from the survey responses are not included.
