Participation Options

Thank you for your interest in the MI Travel Counts survey. This survey is now closed until Spring 2025.

What Is The MI Travel Counts Survey?

We want to hear about your daily transportation habits. How do you travel? How far do you go? How much does it cost? Our goal is to get a complete picture of transportation patterns in Michigan to better plan for future improvements.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has conducted the MI Travel Counts survey every 10 years since 2004. The data analyzed in this survey is vital for regional and statewide planning agencies to understand the impact of growth, development, and other changes on our transportation system. Reliable travel options contribute to Michigan’s quality of life, and this study will help agencies prioritize transportation improvements to best fit Michigan’s needs.

We strongly value your participation in this survey. By taking part, you’ll help us understand how local roads, highways, public transportation, bike lanes, and sidewalks are used today, and how they can be improved to make travel better in the future. Your input will have a big influence because only a limited number of households have been invited to participate in the survey. Your participation ensures that households like yours are represented in local and statewide transportation plans.
