How Do You Move From Point A To Point B?
Make My Trip Count was a regional transportation survey designed to understand how people in the Pittsburgh region get to work. The survey measured what modes of transportation were taken, such as a personal vehicle or bike, light rail, or bus, in addition to ridesharing (such as Uber and Lyft), electric vehicles, and bike share, and what obstacles were faced along the way. Respondents had the opportunity to directly influence policies affecting their daily lives, and previous versions have already shaped regional transportation projects like the Bus Rapid Transit expansion. The 2018 survey closed, with results distributed in 2019.
Make My Trip Count provided an incredibly rich data set to the most important decision makers in the region. By sharing their transportation needs and challenges, Pittsburgh commuters could directly influence how the Pittsburgh region spends its mobility dollars, from bus routes and frequencies to bike lanes and electric vehicle charging stations. With roads that match what all users need, they're supporting healthy communities, happy residents, and ultimately a more prosperous future for everyone. The survey is now closed, but there will be continued opportunities for collaboration.
