Technological advances, such as GPS devices and smartphones, have had
numerous impacts in the realm of travel surveys. These advances bring both challenges and opportunities as we work to balance the potential to collect nearly unlimited amounts of data with the need to not overburden transport survey participants. This paper addresses the steps currently taken to manage this balance in the context of the Future Mobility Survey (FMS), a smartphone based travel survey being developed in the Singaporean context, and presents a preliminary evaluation by comparison with a traditional survey which is being made simultaneously.
