Abbreviated Summary of Commuter and Employer Preferences in Greater Houston

993 views

Published on

The slideshow documents commuter preferences in greater Houston with a broad brush. The information is from www.ghcommutes.org. The website documents a study of commuter and employer transportation preferences in the greater Houston region of Texas. Houston has three of Texas’ most congested highway corridors: IH-45 North, US-59 South, and US-290. Efforts to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles on roadways is critical due to current congestion, population growth, and planned major roadway construction. Texas A&M Transportation Institute researchers collected more than 10,000 survey responses to ascertain current practices and preferences of both employers and commuters.

Without a doubt the best paid surveys site online!I have made money from other survey sites but made double or triple with GoldOpinions.com for the same time and effort.
