This report documents the evaluation of the methodologies used in the travel surveys done in five urban areas in Texas in 1990 and 1991. Based on those evaluations, specific recommendations are made in the areas of sample size estimation, survey methodologies, data specifications, survey instruments, etc. Surveys evaluated include household surveys, workplace surveys, special generator surveys, external station surveys, and truck surveys. Several travel data gaps are also identified where current survey efforts are not sufficient in terms of providing data for their estimation of modeling.
