The North Carolina Department of Transportation, GoTriangle, the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO), and the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC-MPO) have launched an important survey of how people travel across the Triangle region.
This survey – administered by the Institute for Transportation Research and Education at NC State University (ITRE) every two years since 2016 – will help the agencies better understand local travel needs and identify transportation priorities for the region. This data is especially critical as COVID-19 continues to influence typical travel patterns.
Thousands of households across Durham, Orange, Wake, and portions of Chatham, Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Johnston, Nash, and Person counties are expected to participate from February – March of this year. Randomly selected households will be invited to participate by mailed invitation to ensure that travel behaviors across the region are accurately represented. Invited households have the option to complete the survey online, by phone, or through a smartphone app developed by the project consultants, RSG.
Your input matters! We want to hear from you even if your typical travel has changed due to COVID-19. If invited, please participate and do your part in helping our region.

Transportation study in our area needs your input.
A big transportation study, the Northeast Area Study (NEAS) Update, covers the area of northern and eastern Wake County and southern Franklin County. It’s an update to the original study that occurred in 2014. The second phase of public engagement runs from February 15 - March 10, 2021.
The study team has identified biking, walking, rail, bus, and roadway recommendations and needs your help on prioritizing them into near, mid, and long-term buckets. The recommendations will feed into the Triangle region’s long-range transportation plan, which is how we get state and federal dollars for transportation projects.
Check out the virtual Open House where you can:
- Take the prioritization survey.
- Visit (and revisit!) the online map to view recommendations and let us know if we missed anything.
- Learn about the study process.
