Data and Research Results

These surveys give the Met Council critical data to study travel trends as they change and evolve over time. The data collected is used to update and validate the Met Council’s travel forecast model. That forecast model can be used to compare large-scale scenarios, understand the effect of existing policy assumptions on traffic or transit usage, or to understand the impacts or value of major transportation investments.
