Household Travel Survey

In 2011, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) conducted a Household and Activity Travel Survey. The purpose of the survey was to update ARC’s travel demand model and get a better understanding of travel behavior in a 20 County Region. Households were randomly selected to participate in the survey. Those agreeing to participate were assigned a one-day travel period and asked to track of all trips during that period. Information was collected from 10,278 households. When weighted to reflect the population of the region, the households represent 25,810 persons, 93,713 trips and 21,270 vehicles.
