In 2021, SCOG conducted a survey of Skagit County households to better understand travel behaviors and use the results for regional transportation planning activities. Over 600 households and 1,300 Skagitonians participated in the survey, which was called the “Skagit Travel Survey”. Data was collected using smart phones, personal computers and a call center.
The survey had been planned to begin in spring 2020 but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting atypical travel patterns. When the survey was conducted, in fall 2021, several questions were included to gauge changes in travel due to remote working arrangements and home delivery of goods and services. Other survey questions asked participants to grade roadways in Skagit County and prioritize how transportation dollars are spent.
