  • Abstract

    The 2000 Sacramento Area Household Travel Survey, like all recent household travel surveys, relied on the willingness of area residents to complete diary records of their daily travel for a specified day. During their travel day, participating household members were asked to record travel information in a travel diary for the specified 24-hour period. The information documented by respondents includes trip activities, mode of transportation, trip times, and trip location. Demographic information includes gender, age, whether the respondent held a valid driver's license, whether the respondent was a student, employment status, household income, whether the respondent owned or rented a home, and household size.
  • Abstract

    The purpose of the study was to provide data for the continuing development and refinement of the Regional Travel Demand Forecasting Model, as well as to provide a better understanding of travel behavior in the north central California region.
