The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) periodically surveys households throughout northeastern Illinois about their travel habits to learn more about how and why people navigate the region. The latest survey, called My Daily Travel, asked more than 12,000 households in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties about the trips they made for work, school, shopping, errands, and socializing with family and friends.
My Daily Travel was completed in 2019. CMAP has conducted similar travel surveys in 2008 and 1990. The new data collected through the My Daily Travel survey helps CMAP understand regional travel patterns and ensures that ON TO 2050, the long-range plan for northeastern Illinois, is consistent with current and forecasted transportation and land use trends. My Daily Travel survey results are available on the CMAP Data Hub.
