About the Survey


Thank you for participating in the 2017-2018 Regional Travel Survey. Your responses will help us better understand the daily transportation habits of your community. Our goal is to get a complete picture of regional transportation patterns to better plan for future improvements.


We are now conducting a follow-up travel survey using a smartphone app called rMove. By participating you can help us evaluate this new method for collecting regional travel data. Our aim is to reduce the effort required to participate in the survey and to collect information on weekend travel and new modes including e-scooters.


The National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board strongly values your participation in this survey. The information you provide will indicate how roads, public transportation, bike lanes, and sidewalks are used today, and how they can be improved to make travel better in the future.

Any number of trips (even if you don't make any) will help us build an accurate picture of how, when, and why people make trips in the region (or why they don't make trips). Don't forget that short trips, such as walking the dog or going for a jog count too.

What if my transportation habits during the survey aren't my "typical" habits?
