RICHMOND, Va. -- The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), has launched a survey to gauge COVID-19 impacts on commuting across the state.

Anyone who works or lives in Virginia is invited to participate in the Virginia Commuter Survey.

Officials say the survey results will help the state better understand how commuting practices have changed and support ways to identify short- and long-term opportunities and improvements during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

"This is the first in a series of surveys planned over the next several months. The data will be collected and analyzed by state agencies to assess and determine modifications to transit needs and infrastructure," said VDOT and DRPT in a joint release.
