LYNX On-Board Survey
CTG is part of a team selected in 2016 by The Central Florida Transit Authority (d.b.a. LYNX) to conduct a systemwide survey of all regional transit services, including fixed-route bus, SunRail commuter rail, and paratransit/demand response services. CTG was tasked specifically with performing a secondary expansion and review of the survey datasets.
A secondary expansion builds upon the initial expansion by re-expanding the sample across additional dimensions. This allows the survey dataset to closely represent known travel patterns. The secondary expansion corrects for differences in response rates across markets that are not as easily addressed. For the 2017 LYNX and SunRail Origin/Destination survey, the secondary expansion included park-ride/non-park-ride trips, station group-to-station group trip movements (SunRail survey records only), bus stop group-to-bus stop group trip movements (LYNX survey records only), and boardings and alightings at SuperStops (LYNX survey records only).
