  • Watch for the 2022 Origin-Destination Survey

    Watch for the 2022 Origin-Destination Survey The City has launched the 2022 Origin Destination Survey as part of the Transportation Master Plan (TMP) udpdate. This important travel survey is being carried out jointly by the major transportation planning agencies within the national capital region. The goal of the survey is to understand how, where, and why residents travel. The survey asks questions about residents’ households, as well as the trips made by household members. The survey results will help the City make informed decisions on road, transit, pedestrian, and cycling improvements and is a key input for the next phase of the TMP Update, developing the Capital Infrastructure Plan. Households are being chosen at random to take part and residents may receive a letter or phone call inviting them to participate.
