Thank you. Great product.
Mailing list is enough & professional.
Ps.I don't need facebook. Today, the 3rd or 4th largest country on earth is facebook,
and the best place for data mining. I'm not in facebook, but I have access to friends
facebook that has been populated with hundreds of people, save a lot of time.

Subject: [CTPP] Wiki-editable Travel Survey Manual (with example surveydocs) open for
TRB’s Committee on Travel Survey Methods (ABJ40) has developed the transportation
community's first-ever wiki-style On-line Travel Survey Manual with details on
virtually everything transportation survey developers & survey managers need to know.
Please visit http://www.travelsurveymanual.org
to get a sense of the 25 extensive chapters, covering all types of transportation surveys,
including household, visitor, parking, freight & establishment surveys; stated
preference and qualitative surveys; GPS-based designs and data expansion; survey costs and
quality control. The newly developed Appendix provides high-quality samples of RFPs,
diary forms, and other field materials.
This document represents an overhaul and update of the 1996 USDOT and EPA manual prepared
by Cambridge Systematics (thank you to Kevin Tierney!), with major contributions from
TRB’s recent NCHRP Report 571 “Standardized Procedures for Personal Travel Surveys” (thank
you to Peter Stopher & team!).
This document is the result of hard work and long hours by nearly 100 volunteers. Thank
you to everyone who participated in this effort.
Of course, a wiki-style project means that no one is “in charge” of checking all contents
(unlike a contract, where the PI is responsible). There are many ways that this document
can be improved, including corrections and updates, and we would love your editing
We want to keep this document up to date, especially with field materials, such as samples
of RFPs, respondent diaries, and CATI scripts. With the advent of so many computer-based
surveys, we hope survey crews will capture (via video images) & upload computer screen
We hope that you will find this document useful, and we look forward to your help
improving and updating it. For permission to edit chapters, please contact Lei Zhang
(lei(a)umd.edu) or Krishnan Viswanathan (kviswanathan(a)camsys.com
<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> ), so that they can provide you the appropriate
Please pass the word along.
Thanks so much,
Kara Kockelman, Krishnan Viswanathan, Elaine Murakami, Lei Zhang, Kevin Tierney & the
rest of the Travel Survey Manual Gang
