Household Travel Survey

ETC Institute (ETC) is a market research firm that focuses on transportation-related research. ETC has a set of mobile apps and online tools known as the "American Travel Survey". Those tools along with ETC's U.S.-based call center, collect household travel survey data from residents for transportation planning organizations all over the United States. This data allows local and state planners to make budget decisions and planning improvements that truly benefit their communities.

​To learn more about the current household travel survey projects ETC is conducting for TxDOT there is additional information below. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.


The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is conducting a household travel survey in the San Antonio, Killeen-Temple and Waco areas.

To help develop the best improvement plans and projects possible, TxDOT and local communities collect travel information from businesses, residents and drivers. TxDOT has contracted with ETC Institute to administer this survey. ETC staff will be randomly selecting households in the aforementioned areas to participate in the travel survey. Information provided will be used for research purposes and kept confidential, except as provided by the Public Information Act.

Although your participation is voluntary, we hope you will consider making it a priority to participate in the survey to ensure that similar households in the area are properly represented. The results will be used by TxDOT to plan future transportation improvements in the area.

Incentives are paid by ETC Institute. To review the incentive policy disclaimer for this project click here.
