H-GAC obtained State Planning and Research funds from the Texas Department of Transportation to study and improve commute-related incentive programs. H-GAC’s aim is to better understand congestion, particularly along the IH 45 North, US 59 South, and US 290 corridors, and to assist companies and commuters with commute solutions. H‑GAC engaged the research services of TTI to conduct survey-based research into current practices and preferences of both employers and commuters. The scope of work and timeline for the study are as follows:
- 2014: Baseline survey and measurement of utilization of alternatives.
- 2015: Work with partner organizations to adjust incentives and programs.
- 2016: Follow-up survey and measurement of change in utilization of alternatives.
