Welcome to the 2002 National Transportation Availability and Use Survey  

This survey is a national survey of transportation use by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, U.S. Department of Transportation (see brochure). Your household was chosen to answer some questions about its transportation use. The information you provide will let those responsible for national transportation decisions know what improvements are needed.

Your participation is voluntary, and your answers will be completely confidential.

The study is authorized by Title 49, Section 111(c)(2) of the United States Code, which permits agencies to regularly measure customer satisfaction with their performance. The Office of Management and Budget approved the collection of this information under OMB number 2139-0007, which expires 4/30/2004.
