Montgomery County's annual commuter survey has been sent to selected employers. Employer participation is vital, because the information collected from employees through the survey helps the County and other jurisdictions in the region plan for future transportation projects - and that affects commuters and employers alike.
Participating employers benefit by receiving an analysis of the data collected from their own employees. The information can provide insights into how particular commute options can be tailored to benefit their workforce.
Employees who complete the survey are eligible for prizes. Survey answers are completely confidential (names and phone numbers are used only for prize drawings), so employees can respond candidly and thoroughly. Survey questions focus on employees' commute hours and distance, travel modes, vehicle occupancy, parking, access to various types of assistance, and the likely impact of services and programs on their transportation choices.
