Make My Trip Count: Pittsburgh Commuter Survey

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. Whether you’re on a bus, in your car, riding a bike, hopping on the light rail train, using your own two feet to walk, 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 will 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. This will allow future improvements on parking, transit, street layout, and interstate highway construction to be planned more appropriately and efficiently. By taking time out of your day to complete the Make My Trip Count survey, you are making sure your voice is heard. Your opinion can 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 at upcoming locations, Make My Trip Count is targeting 23,000 responses focusing on regular trips into Downtown, Oakland and the North Shore. The survey is available at www.makemytripcount.org  from September 14 – October 16, 2015. Organizations collaborating on Make My Trip Count include the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, Bike Pittsburgh, City of Pittsburgh, Envision Downtown, Green Building Alliance, Group Against Smog & Pollution, Oakland Transportation Management Association, Pittsburgh 2030 District, Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group, Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, Port Authority of Allegheny County, and Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission. www.makemytripcount.org
