Abstract This chapter summarizes some of the results from the Working Group âNational Travel Surveysâ in COST Action 355. All 50 presentations could not be reviewed here; thus, we focus on three crucial topics: the periodicity of data collection, but also its longitudinal aspects (advantages of continuous surveying, repeated cross-sections vs. panel surveys, etc.), new technologies for improving the efficiency and accuracy of mobility surveys (computer-assisted telephone, Web-based, interviews, GPS, GSM, RDS, etc.), innovative approaches, exemplified by qualitative surveys combined with conventional quantitative ones, and by biographical approaches.
