PLEASE RESPOND AND PARTICIPATE IF YOU RECEIVE A SURVEY REQUEST IN THE MAIL

A partnership of the Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade MPOs is conducting a regional travel survey that will help MPO planners in the region better meet the needs of the traveling public. The regional MPO partnership known as the Southeast Florida Transportation Council (SEFTC), began data collection in mid-September and will continue through early 2017. 

A select number of households in the region will be randomly contacted by mail to participate in the first survey phase. Whether you travel by car, train, bus, bicycle or any other mode, participation in this study will inform transportation decisions over the years to come. Participation is easy and voluntary, and information collected is strictly confidential and secure.
