The Arizona Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Highway Administration are conducting a survey to better understand the transportation habits of select individuals as a way of better knowing how to improve roads, public transportation, bike paths and other means of transportation.
Through the course of the voluntary survey, as many as 30,000 households in Arizona may be contacted by letter. Those who are randomly chosen should reply, as the responses will aid the department in bettering knowing where to allocate funds.
“Taking part in the National Household Travel Survey requires just a few easy steps with one purpose: We want to hear your travel story,” ADOT Director John Halikowski said.
Those who choose to take part will complete a 10-minute survey and then record their travel time on a specific day. This information will then be submitted online or over the phone, which can take up to 25 minutes.
All information from participants will be confidential and will be used solely for the purpose of research.
For those who are not invited to participate by letter, they may visit azdot.gov/NHTS to take part in a separate online survey.
