  • Abstract

    The 2000 Bay Area Travel Survey collected travel information from residents of the nine-county Bay Area for weekday and weekend travel both inside and outside of the region. This survey varies from other household travel surveys in that selected households were asked to record all of their activities for a specific two-day period, rather than complete a 24-hour travel log. Respondents were asked to report detailed information regarding their travel, including trip locations, mode of transportation, trip start and end times, trip purpose, and trip activities. Demographic variables include gender, age, employment status, whether the respondent held a valid driver's license, occupation, whether the respondent was a student, income, education level, ethnicity, and whether the respondent had a disability.
