About the Study Region

The Triangle Travel Survey region includes all of Durham, Orange, and Wake counties and portions Chatham, Harnett, Johnston, Franklin, Granville, Nash, and Person counties. The Triangle region is home to approximately 1.77 million residents.

The region has a diverse economy, including many major employers in government, education, and private industry. In addition to being home to Research Triangle Park, the Triangle region is also home to two major medical centers, one housed at Duke University in Durham and the other housed at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The region includes four major universities and several smaller colleges and universities with approximately 86,000 students.

Feedback about transportation needs in local communities throughout the study area will inform how the state maintains and improves the transportation system as the population grows and changes in the coming decades. The study is sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO), Durham – Chapel Hill – Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC), and GoTriangle.
