Since 2000, the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission (CCRPC) has regularly assessed the public’s attitudes on transportation related issues. Previous public surveys were undertaken in 2000, 2006 and 2012. The surveys are collected from a random sampling of Chittenden County residents in order to achieve results that can be reliably extrapolated, within a margin of error, to the entire county population.
The latest survey, conducted in April/May 2018, largely replicated the previous versions to note any historical attitudinal shifts. The purpose of the survey is to objectively measure public opinion regarding performance of the region’s transportation system and identify strategies to address existing and future deficiencies. Relative to performance, questions measure opinion on how well the transportation system serves the public’s travel needs, affects issues of livability, promotes economic development and opportunity, and impacts the environment. Regarding possible improvement strategies, the survey garners opinion on a variety of approaches, including: Adding more highway capacity, expanding public transportation, providing more and safer pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and changing development patterns to better support the transportation system. Broader questions related to transportation policy and financing are also part of the mix.
