PHARR – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is on the last phase of collecting travel surveys.  The surveys were mailed earlier this year and focus on discovering any trends in the transportation priorities of households, workplaces, and commercial vehicles.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Randomly selected households and business were sent a letter asking them to participate.  Participants log their travel over a 24 hour period.  Others will be interviewed at local businesses regarding their specific trips to and from local businesses.

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP?

Response from the public has been low.  The participation of the public is a key factor for a successful survey.  The information will be converted to statistical data and used only for study purposes. Everything remains confidential and people do not need to answer questions that they do not feel comfortable with.
