The City of Fort Collins is Conducting the 2018 Fort Collins Employee Travel Survey!
During the months of September and October 2018, the City of Fort Collins is conducting an employee travel survey targeting employees who work in Fort Collins (residents and non-residents) to understand modal share and trip-making behavior for their work commute and the trips they make during the workday. The information gathered from this project will be used to assist transportation planning and evaluation.
On behalf of the City, National Research Center, Inc. will provide links to employees, via their employers, to access the survey online or through an app (iOS and Android). If a participant chooses to complete the study by app they will be asked to download the app, agree to tracking and be tracked starting with that acceptance and until the end of the next full 24 hour day. Their trips will be imputed and they will be prompted to fill in details (mode, purpose, number in car, etc.) for each completed trip. On opening the app they will also be asked some background questions about their workplace and household. Employers will have the option to request paper versions of the survey, if their employees are not computer-based.
A report of findings will be completed in November 2018.
The employer company name is used to distinguish statistical sub-groups of participants from the rest of responders. This is important as it is needed to ensure the responses will be representative. While answers may be associated with a particular company, they are not associated with an individual’s name, which the survey will never ask for.
Privacy and Confidentiality
The data collected through this survey will be kept in strict confidence and results will only be reported in aggregate; for example, in statements like “33% of respondents drive a SUV”. This means that individual answers and travel behavior will never be reported. The dataset will retain the answers to the survey questions and the geographic locations visited throughout the tracking day, but specific places visited will never be analyzed or reported. Location information will only be used to verify the distance traveled.
This data will not be shared with any other parties or used for any other purpose.
