Last Updated: 
Apr 4, 2016

The surveys collect day-to-day information from households in the central Puget Sound region: how we travel, where we go, how long it takes us, etc. The goal is to obtain a complete picture of travel patterns in the region to produce better plans for the future.

How Are Survey Results Used?

The surveys help the Puget Sound Regional Council and communities throughout the region plan transportation improvements. For example, what role can transit, biking and walking play in improving regional mobility?

About the 2015 Survey

This survey, conducted in spring 2015, is the last phase of the multi-year Travel Study. It is a booster survey following the large-scale household travel and activity survey conducted in 2014. The survey sample included both a panel element – households who participated in the 2014 survey – and a cross-sectional element – households newly recruited for this survey. In addition, a separate subsample of nearly 400 households who completed the 2014 survey participated in a smartphone-based GPS survey. The data available for download are only from the 2015 main survey of 2,419 households.
