Goal: This survey is administered by a group of faculty and students at Columbia University whose research focuses on understanding people’s travel behavior to improve traffic mobility and safety (IRB approved). The objective of this survey is to understand how your travel patterns have been affected in three stages: before the pandemic, after the stay-at-home order is in place, and after the reopening of states. The length of participation in the study is approximately 10-15 minutes.

Results: The results from this survey will help us better understand how to assist policymakers and planners to improve existing transportation infrastructure and service (in particular, public transportation) so that people’s travel needs in the “new normal” can be better accommodated.

Privacy: In this survey, we will not ask you any questions that may reveal your identity. We will also keep your responses confidential. We may publicize analysis based on aggregate data in the form of papers and presentations but only for the research purpose.
