Last chance to take ON TO 2050 implementation surveys

As CMAP moves into the implementation phase of ON TO 2050, we want to hear from you. Please let us know your thoughts on how to advance the plan's three core principles by taking a survey on each topic.
• Inclusive Growth: Growing our economy through opportunity for all.
• Resilience: Preparing for rapid changes, both known and unknown.
• Prioritized Investment: Carefully target resources to maximize benefit.

Tell CMAP how you get around, earn $50

Sign up to take the My Daily Travel survey at or by calling 1-855-981-7286. The survey asks households in northeastern Illinois to report how they get from place to place in our region.
The resulting data will help ensure that computer models of traffic flow are accurate so transportation investments can be based on sound analysis. The survey helps our region meet federal requirements and remain eligible for federal transportation funding.
Households that complete the survey by May 2019 will receive $50. In addition, school districts that partner with My Daily Travel to promote the survey to their schools’ communities will receive $10 per household that completes the survey. School districts that would like to participate must call the survey hotline (1-855-981-7286) to receive a customized URL, which will enable surveys to be “marked” as benefiting their district. Read more about the survey in Patch.
