Whatcom Regional Transportation Study launched

WCOG has initiated a household transportation study to better understand the transportation needs and preferences of our Whatcom residents.  The study will help answer questions about how we can improve public investments as population grows and travel patterns evolve.

Invitations to participate will be mailed to randomly selected households within Whatcom County.

The survey consists of a general questionnaire followed by a daily travel log.  Invited participants who complete their surveys will have an opportunity to receive a gift card of choice as our thanks to you.  Please participate in this important endeavor – your voice matters!
