Metropolitan Travel Survey Archive

The Metropolitan Travel Survey Archive (MTSA) includes travel surveys from numerous public agencies across the United States.

The Transportation Secure Data Center has archived these surveys to ensure their continued public availability. The survey data have been converted to a standard file format and cleansed to remove personally identifiable information, including any detailed spatial data regarding individual trips.

To access additional files and formats, visit the MTSA website.

Data Collection Agencies

MTSA surveys were originally collected by state departments of transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, councils of government, and cities. 

Methodology

Most surveys have accompanying documentation and metadata. Please consult these files for detailed information about the survey methodology.
