VDOT AND DRPT SEEK COMMUTER INPUT THROUGH STATEWIDE SURVEY
STATEWIDE SURVEY Multi-agency strategy aims to capture data on new commuting practices related to COVID-19

RICHMOND, Va. – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), in partnership with the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), has launched the Virginia Commuter Survey, a statewide effort to gauge COVID-19 impacts to commuting around the Commonwealth. Anyone that works or lives in Virginia is invited to participate.

 This is the first in a series of surveys planned over the next several months. The data will be collected and analyzed by state agencies to assess and determine modifications to transit needs and infrastructure. 

The survey will be fielded for at least two weeks and can be accessed here: https://VAcommuter.metroquest.com 

Survey results will help the state better understand how commuting practices have changed and support ways to identify short- and long-term opportunities and improvements during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
