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.
Sampling 2500 U.Va. Students
