Okanagan travel survey deadline approaches

Participants have until Dec. 18

Central Okanagan and Vernon residents who received letters in the mail inviting them to participate in the Okanagan Travel Survey have until Tuesday, Dec. 18 to complete it.

Those who complete the survey online or over the phone are eligible to win a cash prize or one of 100 gift certificates.

If a resident has misplaced their letter with their unique participation code, they can call the toll-free survey hotline at 1-855-319-2887.

Transportation is a top issue for residents and this statistically significant and confidential survey, conducted every five years, provides important data for transportation planning.
