GHCommutes.org documents the survey portion of a study of commuter and employer transportation preferences in the greater Houston region. The Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) conducted the outreach on behalf of the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H‑GAC) in Fall 2014. More than 7,000 commuters and 61 employers participated. Findings from the study enable H-GAC and partners to review and improve incentives aimed at managing roadway congestion by boosting participation in alternative travel modes, telecommuting, alternative work schedules, and other practices.
GHCommutes.org is organized in a progression of information:
Describes the impetus for the study: congestion, population, mode choice, etc.
Summarizes the study process and provides context for findings and analysis.
Overview of findings from commuter and employer responses.
In-depth analysis of commuter survey responses: maps, tables, story boards, etc.
