Subject: Travel Reduction Program: Annual Survey

Date: October 4, 2019

The month of October is survey time for the annual Travel Reduction Survey for all University of Arizona Main Campus. The UA has over 13,000 employees. The information collected in the annual TRP survey provides data to support decisions about community and transportation planning for the greater Tucson metro area. The survey takes just a few minutes and asks questions on how you commute to and from work each day.

The survey is conducted by Pima Association of Governments (PAG), the region's metropolitan planning organization working to improve the region's transportation safety, reliability and efficiency. PAG collaborates with the UA Transportation Research Institute, an interdisciplinary collection of expertise addressing the challenges of the changing transportation eco-system.

All employers in the region with more than 100 full-time employees are required to participate in the survey under a travel reduction ordinance in place by the region's various jurisdictions.

PAG uses the data collected in the survey to calculate emissions benefits of travel reduction efforts and alternative transportation mode usage. The data identifies opportunities for carpooling, vanpooling and other commuting options. Survey data also is used to evaluate the transit system, and provides travel time data, which is used to improve roadways, reduce congestion and improve traffic flow.

The small investment of your time to participate in the survey helps to:

  • Reduce traffic congestion
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Lower the costs associated with transportation
  • Improve air quality
  • Improve job access
  • Create new mobility options
  • Improve your quality of life

The survey data is very important to regional planning that benefits everyone.

Thank you for investing your time to complete the TRP survey by the end of October. Your efforts can help make the community a better place to live, work and play.
