Mobility surveys and transport modelling

Town Evidence Packs

Hertfordshire County Council have created Town Evidence Packs to help understand local movements, interactions and characteristics around a specific town. They can help developers with pre-application work and can support decision making and funding opportunities. Evidence Packs have been created for the majority of Hertfordshire towns and include information on: origin and destination movements, trip patterns by mode of transport, journey times, congestion, demographics, economics and accident data. Each pack costs £750 and can be purchased by contacting the team via the contact details noted below.


Furthermore Executive Summaries have been produced for each of the Evidence Packs and are available to download free of charge.

Countywide multi-modal transport model travel patterns

In early 2015, AECOM developed a countywide multi-modal transport model (COMET).

They produced a Pattern of travel across Hertfordshire report which has helped us to understand how people travel in Hertfordshire. This has improved our understanding of how to develop the county's transport infrastructure and accessibility.

Hertfordshire county travel survey

The Hertfordshire county travel survey recorded how a large number of our residents travel.


District specific results


The results of these surveys have helped us to improve our existing transport structures and have assisted with developing new schemes.
