OKI conducting travel survey

The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI), in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Transportation and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, is conducting a travel survey to see how people move throughout the region.

The Greater Cincinnati Household Travel Survey will randomly select 4,000 households in eight area counties to take part in telephone or Internet surveys and to use GPS devices and trip diaries to collect data that will be used to update the OKI Regional Travel Demand Model, a system used to forecast travel and vehicle emissions in the future.

The data also will be used in future transportation planning efforts.

The last household travel survey was conducted in 1995.

Selected participants will be contacted by telephone or by e-mail.

Upon completion of the survey, OKI plans to make information on transit usage, auto occupancy, trip length and trip purpose available on its website.
