Travis Bunner, Vice President – EMC Research
GBA is partnering with EMC Research on the 2018 Make My Trip Count survey. Make My Trip Count is a survey to analyze the habits of commuters in the Pittsburgh region, helping decision-makers better understand the habits, mode choices, and motivations of commuters to, from, and within Greater Pittsburgh.  Understand the benefits of commuter surveys, be inspired by best practices from other cities, and learn how your building or organization can participate in Make My Trip Count when it launches on September 10th.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand how the regional public transportation system functions, and planned improvements to increase mobility and decrease emissions.
  2. Gain insight into a regional long-range transportation planning process.
  3. Discover how commuter survey data can be gathered and disseminated to inform transportation planning.
  4. Learn about the Make My Trip Count survey, and how your building or organization can participate.
