Texas Travel Survey

TxDOT conducts travel surveys in urban areas across the state. These surveys provide information about local travel patterns and needs. They help TxDOT and their local partners make decisions about transportation projects that impact all of us. Watch our informative video and click on the survey from the dropbox menu to make your voice heard.

The household survey helps determine the amount of travel generated in an area by local residents. Participants use a smartphone app, website or other methods to record where, when, how and why they travel.

Workplace icon

The workplace survey helps determine the amount of travel generated by local businesses, agencies and visitors to an area. It includes brief employee and visitor interviews and on-site traffic counts.

Commercial vehicle icon

The commercial vehicle survey helps estimate the amount of commercial traffic in an area and the types of cargo being transported. Local businesses and organizations use a smartphone app, website or other methods to record information about the services and delivery trips they make.

External study area icon

The external study utilizes anonymized crowded-sourced data from mobile devices and vehicle navigation systems to analyze the regional travel patterns. The results, displayed as visualizations in some areas, help TxDOT estimate the amount of vehicles travelling into, out of, and through urban areas.
