Welcome!

Thank you for participating in our regional transportation survey. Your feedback is very important to us.

This survey is for everyone who lives or works in the greater Madison region. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous.

Feedback from this survey will inform our regional transportation plan, by helping us understand trends, attitudes and barriers in our region. This will help us set long-term transportation goals and identify policies and priorities that all communities in our region, Dane County, and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation can work toward.

After completing the survey, you will be eligible to enter a prize drawing for one of ten $25 VISA gift cards.
