This report seeks to better understand how the COVID-19 pandemic affected travel behaviors and perceptions in Idaho's Treasure Valley, with findings based off of a geographically and demographically representative sample of 600 Treasure Valley adults with a margin of error of +/- 4%. This study finds that a majority of residents say the COVID-19 pandemic has not substantially affected the frequency of their travel, nor impacted their access to transportation. A quarter of residents report sometimes using alternative means of transportation like walking, biking, or public transportation, while more than half remain open to using these alternative means in the future.


This report was prepared by Idaho Policy Institute at Boise State University and commissioned by Valley Regional Transit.
