Overnight Travel Survey – You Can Help!

How do people make decisions related to overnight travel? This question, while important for travel planning, is little understood by researchers. However, two researchers, Lisa Aultman-Hall of Transportation Research Center, University of Vermont and Jeffrey LaMondia of College of Engineering, Auburn University, are conducting a year long study to understand these factors. They are calling for volunteers to participate in this study. Sign up here by February 4, 2013 to participate. 

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete thirteen 5-minute online surveys (one per month) between February 2013 and February 2014.  Whether you travel a lot or infrequently, your participation is valuable.  In order to qualify, you must be 25 years or older, and multiple people from the same household may participate. Your survey responses will remain anonymous and will only be used for research purposes. Because participants will receive a monthly reminder email to go to a website and complete the survey, volunteers may complete the survey at their convenience. Every month, an iPad or iPod will be raffled to those who complete their web survey (8 iPads and 5 iPods in total). 

Results from this study will be shared with state and federal decision-makers to improve overnight travel congestion, costs, and opportunities. The survey is funded by the US Department of Transportation for the University of Vermont and is being conducted by RSG, Inc., an independent transportation market research company.
