The Virginia Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Department of Rail and Public Transportation, has launched the Virginia Commuter Survey, a statewide effort to gauge COVID-19 impacts to commuting around the commonwealth. Anyone who works or lives in Virginia is asked to participate.

Survey results will help state officials better understand how commuting practices have changed and support ways to identify short- and long-term opportunities and improvements during and after the pandemic.
