UVa NHTS -- Uva-Specific Travel Survey of Students for VDOT

As part of the 2009 Virginia add-on to the National Household Travel Survey (NHTS), Virginia Department of Transportation asked CSR to administer the NHTS instrument to U.Va. Students. U.Va. Worked in conjunction with researchers at VCU, ODU, and Virginia Tech to convert the original telephone instrument to a web survey. The travel diary and study protocol was customized to a University setting. Students (n=1003 at U.Va.) provided trip diary information for randomly pre-assigned travel days allowing analysis of origin destination data. The data will allow transportation modelers to improve transportation models for the college-age population that is normally under-represented in the NHTS in University communities.

Virginia Department of Transportation Customer Satisfaction Survey

CSR conducted a statewide RDD telephone survey asking citizens of Virginia about satisfaction with features of major highways and secondary roads. It also asked how satisfied people were with VDOT`s efforts to maintain the roads. The project called for complex sample design and weighting in order to accurately represent the state`s nine VDOT districts and forty-five residencies. Questions were comparable to those used in a nationwide survey conducted by FHWA in 2000.
