DATASET: The impact of Covid-19 on travel behaviour, transport, lifestyles and residential location choices in Scotland

Downey, Lucy; Fonzone, Achille; Fountas, Grigorious



In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Edinburgh Napier University’s Transport Research Institute has been undertaking a study, funded by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC), into its impact on transport and travel in Scotland. As part of this research, a travel behaviour questionnaire was developed focusing on daily travel as well as people’s long-term travel habits, attitudes and preferences during the different phases of the pandemic outbreak. The associated questionnaires were completed by participants between 3rd February 2021 and 17th February 2021 using the online platform, Qualtrics. The survey was restricted to Scottish residents and involved enforcing quota constraints for age, gender and household income. A total of 994 responses were collected.
