TRANSIT PATRON ORIGIN AND DESTINATION SURVEY. A METRO TRANSIT/CITY OF SEATTLE JOINT PROJECT (1973)

The purpose of this survey was to provide a current data base which would assist in the rational planning and marketing of public transportation in King County, Washington. The report presents the methods and preliminary results of the transit patron origin and destination survey conducted on May 23 and 24, 1973, on the Municipality of Metropolitan Seattle (Metro) Transit System. The survey consisted of two parts, including a one-way (inbound) questionnaire distributed to approximately 58,000 passengers who boarded buses outside the Seattle Central Business District (CBD), and a complementary survey questionnaire distributed to approximately 33,000 persons boarding inside the Seattle CBD. The results of the survey were processed and stored in machine-readable form on magnetic tape. Data were summarized on both a geographic and a demographic basis.
