City to conduct survey about how residents commute to DHL Stadium

The City of Cape Town will commence with an online travel survey today, 5 September 2022, to gather information about residents’ commuting patterns and travel behaviour when travelling to events held at the DHL Stadium in Cape Town. The data will assist the City’s Urban Mobility Directorate with transport related planning for big events held at the stadium.

The online transport survey for events at the DHL Stadium will run from today, 5 September 2022 until 16 September 2022, and is available through the following link: https://bit.ly/CCT-DHL-Survey.

The City kindly requests residents to participate in the survey as the data will assist the City to plan better for future transport related needs and interventions pertaining to big events held at the DHL stadium.

‘We need to know more about how and when residents travel to the DHL Stadium. The more we know about their travel patterns and behaviour, the better we can prepare for future events. This will benefit commuters as we will be able to improve our planning and the supply of transport services. The survey will take less than five minutes to complete and the data will be extremely valuable to our transport planning team,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.

Those who participate in the survey will be requested to provide information about their demographics and travel behaviour.

For example, some of the questions in the online survey will focus on:

1. Where the person lives – this is to determine the point of departure when travelling to the DHL stadium

• Which events and how often the person attends events at the stadium

• How they travel to the DHL Cape Town Stadium for an event and why

• The duration of their trip to and from the stadium

Where they park when attending an event at the stadium

Furthermore, the data that is collected will not be shared with any third parties outside of the City.
