Study Shows How Quad Citians Get Around

Posted: Updated:

How do you get around in the Quad Cities? The Bi-State Regional Commission is trying to figure that out.

From September 2013 to January 2014, more than 1,700 Quad City households were surveyed about the way they travel.

Among other things, the study found that 58 percent of the respondents reported crossing the Mississippi River at least once per week.

The study was designed to give transportation planners in the Quad Cities metro area a better understanding of how people travel and why.

According to the commission, the results will be used by planners and local officials to identify people's current travel choices and how it affects our transportation system.

They say the data will also help improve regional mobility.

The study was funded through a grant from the Iowa Clean Air Attainment Program.
