Participation

In order to ensure that the results of the survey are representative, participation is only possible for those who have been selected by random sampling from the population register of the City of Flensburg. With this procedure, the representativeness of the survey can be guaranteed.

Participation in the mobility survey is voluntary. However, please bear in mind that by taking part you are making an important contribution to ensuring that transport planning can be geared more closely to the needs of the population and thus also to your needs. For this reason, we urge you to participate in the survey.

If you need assistance in filling out the questionnaires or would prefer to participate in the survey by telephone, please contact the offices of Planersocietät, who are conducting the survey: Tel. 0231 / 58 96 96 0.

Please return the enclosed postcard indicating that you would like to take part using the written questionnaires. The postage costs are of course covered. Alternatively, you can call 0231 / 70013 994 to request the written survey documentation or to make an appointment to answer the questions over the phone. Please remember to make a note of the trips you make on your reporting day so that you can transfer them to the written documents or tell us about them by telephone.

In such cases, it is of course possible to conduct the survey by telephone. To do so, please contact the company O-TON in Dortmund (0231 / 70013 994) and arrange a telephone appointment.
