Lake County Conducting Transportation Survey

The Lake County Division of Transportation is conducting a study to identify ways to reduce “single-occupied vehicle travel,” which is travel in automobiles containing only one person.

As part of its 2019 Strategic Plan, the Lake County Board prioritized transportation solutions that provide alternatives to travel in single-occupied vehicles. The goal is to develop a plan that reduces trip times, air pollution and carbon emissions, while protecting valuable open space in Lake County.

The survey, known as the “MY Commute Lake County” study, asks commuters how they normally get to work, school or other frequent destinations. 

While Lake County initially saw a significant decrease in traffic during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, traffic has steadily been returning back to normal over the last few months, according to the Lake county Board.

An email sent by the Lake County Division of Transportation says “Your participation will provide valuable information to achieve our goals of reducing traffic congestion and helping our planet well after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed. Biking, trains, buses, carpooling, services like Uber and Lyft and much more will all be analyzed through this study.”

The Division of Transportation also includes a link to a Youtube video that discusses the survey.
