About the Survey
We want to learn how, when, where, and why people travel in and around Utah. We’re asking you to log your travel to help us understand regional transportation patterns. By participating you can help us plan for future transportation improvements in your community.
Your participation ensures that households like yours are represented in our state and regional transportation plans. Your input has a big impact because only a limited number of households are invited to participate.
Invited households were selected at random from across Utah.
This study is sponsored by the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), the Utah Transit Authority (UTA), and Utah’s four metropolitan planning organizations: Cache Metropolitan Planning Organization (CMPO), Dixie Metropolitan Planning Organization (Dixie MPO), Mountainland Association of Governments (MAG), and Wasatch Front Regional Council (WFRC).
Completing the Survey
It takes about 10 minutes to sign up for the survey. Once you sign up, we’ll give you instructions for logging your travel and completing the survey. Households that log their travel for seven days in the smartphone app, rMove, will spend about 5-10 minutes each day reporting their travel. Households that log their travel online or over the phone will spend about 10 minutes per household member reporting their travel for one day.
You will receive a financial incentive after all members of your household have reported their travel and completed their surveys. The incentive amount depends on participation and recruitment method. Participants invited through academic institutions will be entered in a prize drawing for 1 of 40 $100 gift cards. Participants invited through other methods will be eligible for $10 or more after completing the survey. More information is available when you begin.
All adult household members must complete the survey to be eligible for financial incentives.
The survey is for legal residents of the United States, 18 years of age or older, who live in Utah. Employees, clients, contractors, directors and officers of RSG, and their immediate family members and people living in the same household with them are not eligible. Not all completed surveys will qualify for an incentive.
Any incentive will be delivered after the identity and address of the recipient has been confirmed. LIMIT ONE INCENTIVE PER HOUSEHOLD completing the web survey or LIMIT ONE INCENTIVE PER ADULT (18+) completing the smartphone survey.
No substitution, cash redemption, or transfer of an incentive is permitted. If an incentive cannot be awarded for any reason, RSG reserves the right to substitute an incentive of equal or greater value. All federal, state and local taxes and all other costs associated with acceptance or use of any incentive, other than the initial shipping or delivery of the incentive to the winner, are the sole responsibility of the receiver of the incentive.
In the unlikely event RSG suspects the surveys or incentive entry mechanism or both have been tampered with, the payment of incentives will be discontinued until the integrity of the process is restored. If possible, RSG will place a notice on the survey website regarding any suspension and resumption of the payment of incentives.
Any amount of travel (even if you don’t make any trips) will help us improve regional transportation planning. Don’t forget that short trips, such as walking the dog, count too.
That’s no problem – we still encourage you to participate. We’ll also ask about your typical travel habits, how your travel has changed over the past year, and how you think you’ll travel in the future.
After you download rMove and sign up, rMove will log your trips for one week while you go about your daily life. Each day you’ll be asked to complete a short daily survey about your travel habits as well as a trip survey about each trip you make.
