The North Carolina Department of Transportation and regional transportation agencies are launching a major study this week to better understand how people travel throughout the region.
As technologies evolve and travel behaviors change quickly over the next few years, transportation planners need to collect current travel data to inform future transportation investments and prioritize improvements.
At least 1,100 households in the Triangle region are expected to participate in September – November of 2022. To ensure a statistically representative sample, households will be invited to participate by mailed invitation. While this survey is not currently open to volunteers, please respond if you receive an invitation. Invitations will be sent in several waves over the next several weeks.
Invited households have the option to complete the study online, by phone, or through a smartphone app (rMove™) developed by the project consultants, RSG. When complete, this study will help the region plan for a more efficient future transportation system.
“We need everyone invited to participate in the Triangle Travel Survey to take the time to complete it. The data helps inform our planning and funding decisions for future transportation improvements across the entire region. The survey will help identify where people are going, how they currently get there, any trends, etc.,” said Sig Hutchinson, Chair of the Capital Area MPO (CAMPO) Executive Board and Wake County Board of Commissioners. CAMPO is one of the sponsors of the Triangle Travel Survey.
