Data and publications

To help understand and improve our transport systems, we make VISTA survey data available to the public, transport researchers, local councils and consultants working for the Victorian Government.

VISTA data

Households across Melbourne and Geelong complete a travel diary on a single specified day as part of the VISTA survey.

Since 2012, 32,000 households and 82,000 people have contributed to the ongoing survey. The latest data available is from March 2020.

Earlier VISTA surveys were also conducted in 2007 and 2009.

More detailed findings are available via an interactive data visualisation tool that allows users to explore data for all surveys going back to 2007.

Due to restrictions related to COVID-19 over 2020 and 2021, normal VISTA data collection did not occur.

A new data collection period commenced in February 2022 and we anticipate that the next VISTA data publication will be available in late 2024.
