Have your say … Puget Sound Regional Travel Study coming soon

Travel Study logo

Starting in April 2014, over 90,000 homes in King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish counties will receive invitations to participate in a regional travel study online or by phone.

Participation in the study can help answer questions about how the region can maintain and improve mobility, accessibility, and connectivity for residents as population grows and travel patterns evolve. The study will help planners understand the travel behavior of real households, such as the trips people make to work, school, or shopping centers, to help decision makers prioritize transportation projects.

The survey will involve questions about general household information as well as travel details for a given weekday. All individual and household information collected in this study will remain strictly confidential. The aggregated data will be used for analysis and modeling purposes

The last household travel study in the Puget Sound region took place in 2006 (learn more here). The results of the 2014 study will be used to ensure that transportation improvements reflect the current conditions and resident needs.

For more information visit, call 844-393-4436, or visit the Travel Study Page.
