This portion of the Hampton Roads Military Transportation Needs Study builds on the first phase (Highway Network Analysis – September 2011), providing results from the Hampton Roads Military Commuter Survey conducted from November 8, 2011 to February 24, 2012. HRTPO staff developed the survey in coordination with local U.S. armed forces, local government, the Port of Virginia, HRT, and VDOT. The purpose of the survey is to determine the transportation challenges facing local military personnel during their daily commutes in Hampton Roads. The results will enable transportation decision-makers, including the HRTPO Board, to direct resources to solve those problems in an informed manner.
A total of 10,994 survey responses were received from the HRTPO military commuter survey. A summary of survey responses by military site is provided in the table below. Many respondents expressed thanks for having the opportunity to communicate their transportation challenges. This report contains key findings and summaries from the survey. Most results have been summarized on a regional level to reveal general travel trends and patterns for local military commuters. Some results are summarized by military site to reveal travel patterns for that location. Data from this survey will be distributed to other local transportation stakeholders for further analysis and study in order to enhance travel throughout Hampton Roads. Finally, a set of HRTPO staff recommendations, intended to improve military travel throughout Hampton Roads, has been included.
