Families and individuals who live or work in Dubai are invited to take part in the Roads and Transport Authority's (RTA) new Travel Behaviour Survey.
The poll will run from January to June this year and cover more than 7,000 samples of the population in Dubai and its neighbouring emirates, the RTA said in an announcement on Sunday.
It will include 5,000 families (citizens and residents); 1,500 individuals visiting or working in Dubai; and 500 cargo transport companies operating in Dubai.
Launching the poll is part of the RTA's efforts to enhance roads and public transport networks and services. The goal, it added, is to provide a smooth and safe transportation experience for the public in line with the emirate's ambitious Urban Plan 2040.
Special incentives await respondents who successfully complete the survey, the authority said in the questionnaire's introduction.
Muna Al Osaimi, director of the RTA's Transportation Strategic Planning, Strategy and Corporate Governance Sector said,"Over the next few days, the RTA would launch a survey to measure the mobility trends and behaviours of residents and visitors of Dubai. Communication channels with the public would include home questionnaires, field visits, personal interviews, and online interviews, including via smart apps."
