Household Travel Survey

During 2011 and 2012, the Transportation Planning Board (TPB) at the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) is conducting a survey of 4,800 households in 14 communities in the Washington region to gather updated information on area travel patterns. This data will help guide future transportation planning as the area continues to grow and assist local governments in determining which transportation improvements will benefit their citizens the most. The Washington region is among the fastest growing areas in the country. With more jobs and people coming to the area all the time, the impacts on our burdened highway and public transportation systems are felt by all of us.

The seven communities being surveyed in 2012 are:

  1. Friendship Heights in the District of Columbia and Montgomery County, Maryland
  2. New York Avenue Corridor in the District of Columbia
  3. St. Charles Urbanized Area in Charles County, Maryland
  4. National Harbor in Prince George's County, Maryland
  5. Beauregard Avenue Corridor in the City of Alexandria and Fairfax County, Virginia
  6. East Falls Church and West Falls Church Metrorail Station areas in Arlington County, the City of Falls Church, and Fairfax County, Virginia
  7. The Dulles North Area in Loudoun County, Virginia

2007-2008 Survey

In 2007 and 2008, the TPB conducted a survey of 11,000 households in the Washington region and adjacent areas to gather updated information on area wide travel patterns. If you would like to make a formal informational request, please go to our Data Request page.
