RSG has launched an innovative national panel survey to quantify how travel behaviors and attitudes are changing as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The COVID-19 Transportation Insights Panel is a powerful tool to quantify how people’s sentiments and choices change over the course of the pandemic. The panel currently comprises four waves carried out between May and October 2020, with a total sample of over 12,000 respondents from across the United States.

The COVID-19 Transportation Insights Panel is a nationally representative longitudinal panel survey designed to help decision makers better understand how travel behaviors and attitudes are changing as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The survey collects data about travel before, during, and following the COVID-19 pandemic. Key topics include:

  • Typical travel behavior before mid-March 2020 and over the previous seven days 
  • Behavior and demographic changes since mid-March 2020
  • Attitudes about traveling by transit, air, and other modes, based on various safety measures
  • Current teleworking and interest in future teleworking
  • COVID-19 health status

Yes, our survey panelists represent the US population by factors including geographic region, age, gender, income, and race or ethnicity.

The national panel covers the entire United States. RSG has also collected subsamples for specific planning regions throughout the country.
