Make My Trip Count: Pittsburgh Commuter Survey

First run in 2015, “pittsburgh-commuter-survey-tripMake My Trip Count” is a survey of Pittsburgh region commuters to figure out how Pittsburghers regularly travel to work or school – and how that commute could be improved. Look for a repeat of this triennial survey in 2018 from GBA and our transportation partners!  MakeMyTripCount.org

Whether you’re on a bus, in your car, riding a bike, hopping on the light rail train, using your own two feet, or traveling by other means, you’re making commute trips multiple times per day – and we’re interested in improving your options and access.  Especially if you make regular trips into Downtown, Oakland, and the North Shore, we need your input. Aggregate results inform transportation and commute improvements across the Pittsburgh region to reduce traffic, delay, and environmental impacts.

Learning the habits of commuters’ driving, riding, and walking habits is very important — and Make My Trip Count has informed decision-making and improvements in parking, transit, street layout, pedestrian and bike amenities, and interstate highway construction.

In Fall 2018, please plan on taking time out of your day to complete the Make My Trip Count survey and make sure your voice is heard. Your opinion will help reduce the time you sit in traffic, are waiting for the bus or the T, and can help the city provide better options for you to commute to work.

Make My Trip Count is a strategic effort to generate up-to-date information about how Pittsburgh region commuters regularly travel to work or school – and figure out how those daily trips can be improved. Hosted online, by a large number of local employers and community organizations, and in-person Make My Trip Count 2015  generated 20,700 responses focusing on regular trips into Downtown, Oakland and the North Shore. The survey was available at MakeMyTripCount.org  from September 14 – October 16, 2015.
