Ipsos is conducting this survey for Te Manatū Waka Ministry of Transport and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, who are working together with The Ministry of Social Development.
This is an important survey to understand how you use transport and your feedback will help make sure New Zealanders have easy access to transport for work, shopping, healthcare, and leisure activities. It will help us to understand how you use transport, your opinions and preferences, and to identify the issues that need to be addressed to help you have better travel options.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY FEEDBACK?
Your feedback will be used to help Ipsos report to Te Manatū Waka Ministry of Transport on how to better understand how New Zealanders use transport, and to address the issues facing transport in New Zealand. Your feedback will be anonymised and then presented back as statistics to the Ministry by Ipsos. The survey responses will be kept safe and secure so unauthorised people can't use it. Any published statistics or research will not, and cannot, identify individuals. Ipsos will store archived data securely and, when it's no longer needed, destroy it. We'll share anonymised information with other government agencies for the purpose of statistics and research only. Only anonymised data will be provided to the Ministry. This means all personal identifiable information like name, email address etc is removed from the data. No organisation, including Ipsos, can get information that identifies survey responses from individuals.
HOW LONG WILL IPSOS KEEP THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE?
At the end of the prize draw we will securely delete all personal data, leaving only anonymous research results.
