If you’re a southeast Florida resident who would like to get involved and assist in improving local transportation, then this Travel Survey Challenge is for you! 

The Southeast Florida Transportation Council (SEFTC) launches the Battle of the Counties Travel Survey Challenge - a friendly, data-collecting challenge between the residents of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties – in an effort to improve the local transportation system. The travel information you provide will offer insight and a new perspective to making counties more economically vibrant. 

The 2017 Battle of the Counties Travel Survey Challenge influences optimal ways of catering to the diverse and evolving transportation needs in southeast Florida. The feedback from local residents will assist transportation engineers and planners to improve our roads, reduce traffic congestion and provide safer sidewalks and bicycle facilities. By 2040, the southeast Florida region is expected to grow 25 percent, from 5.6 million people to 7 million people.
