TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH BOARD

ABJ40 Travel Survey Methods Committee

Chair: Guy Rousseau, Atlanta Regional Commission

Committee Goals

The current goals of the committee are to enhance the quality and usefulness of transportation surveys done at the local, state, and national levels. An important activity in reaching our goals is the definition of research needs that consider the challenges posed by current and expected social and technology changes. To fulfill our scope effectively, the committee is dedicated to developing an understanding of the types of questions and analytical problems that need to be addressed by transportation survey data users (modelers, planners and policy makers) through liaison with other TRB committees, with other transportation-oriented agencies in the U.S. and other countries. The committee recognizes that a diverse, engaged, and informed committee membership is required to successfully function in the role of stimulating research on survey methods and disseminating research results to improve the conduct of transportation surveys.
