Beginning in February, letters were mailed to approximately 76,000 randomly selected households throughout Durham, Orange, and Wake counties, along with portions of Chatham, Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Johnston, Nash, and Person counties asking for their participation in a regional travel survey.
The Triangle Travel Survey is a study of day-to-day household travel activity and typical travel patterns for residents of the Triangle region. The information is vital for the regional planning agencies to understand how the transportation system is impacted by growth, development and other changes in communities across the region.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation, together with GoTriangle, the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO), and the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC-MPO), are urging invited households to complete the survey, which will continue through May.
The survey results will be used to update the Triangle region’s travel forecasting model which is used by transportation officials to develop long-range transportation plans and help identify transportation priorities for the region.
To ensure that travel behaviors across the region are accurately represented, it is important that only those randomly-selected households who receive an invitation complete a survey.
