This study collects information about day-to-day travel in and across the Puget Sound region to obtain a statistically accurate picture of travel patterns.
This study will help the Puget Sound Regional Council and local governments plan transportation improvements so that investments are made when and where needed to accommodate the region's growth.
Planning agencies need data about local travel characteristics to plan for current and future transportation needs. Your input has a big impact because your household is one of a small number participating.
The Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) is regional planning organization responsible for transportation, economic development, and land use planning within King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. PSRC also assembles data used by planners in the region. For more info, visit www.psrc.org
The Puget Sound Regional Council is the regional sponsor. The City of Seattle is sponsoring extra data collection in Seattle's Urban Villages.

If you are selected for the smartphone-based study, we will assign you to a one-week travel period and ask all adults to download a smartphone app, rMove™, that will automatically record your trips and prompt you to answer a few questions each day about your travel behaviors.
