2021 Travel Monitoring Report
The 2021 Travel Monitoring Report (TMR) is the latest edition in a history of monitoring reports produced by the Travel Monitoring and Modeling Group dating back to 2004. The TMR is continuation and rebranding of the semi-biennial Mobility Assessment Report (MAR) and continues the legacy of monitoring transportation performance and usage throughout the County. As with each edition of the TMR, the report strives to explore and leverage new alternative transportation datasets and analytical tools that help provide a clearer vision of how the County is meeting its transportation goals, objectives, and metrics defined in the General Plan (Thrive Montgomery 2050) and Functional Plans as well as the Growth and Infrastructure Policy.
The TMR summary report is an abbreviated version of previous travel monitoring reports with an added focus on recent impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic inefficiencies caused by single occupancy vehicle (SOV) travel. The summary report is for residents and public officials who are interested in tracking legacy countywide metrics and data (vehicle miles traveled, congestion, intersection level of service, transit ridership, etc.).
