VERMONT TRAVEL INFORMATION STUDY: AN EVALUATION OF THE STATEWIDE TRAVEL INFORMATION PROGRAM
The purpose of the study was to evaluate the system of informational signs and map plazas which has replaced conventional billboard advertising in the State of Vermont. To evaluate the effectiveness of the program, self-administered questionnaires were sent to selected businesses throughout the state. In addition, self-administered questionnaires were sent to all chambers of commerce or similar community organizations. Self-administered questionnaires for travelers were distributed at participating businesses and information plazas. Selected roadside interviews of travelers were also conducted. The results of the survey are presented in tabular form by type or station with a list of comments received following each section. The data obtained in the survey indicated that the reaction to the uniform color coded informational signs was generally positive, but the reaction to the information plazas was less positive.
