Next-Gen National Household Travel Survey--National Origin-Destination Data Component

Project Information

Project ID:
FHWA-PROJ-20-0017
Project Abstract:


In June 2020, the Federal Highway Administration awarded a contract to the University of Maryland (UMD) to compile the national origin-destination (OD) data component of the Next-Gen National Household Travel Survey (NextGen NHTS) program. The OD data component will leverage in-vehicle and smartphone application-generated passive mobility data to provide a national summary of travel between 583 zones, including all metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) and the non-MSA portions of each state and the District of Columbia. The OD tables will summarize annualized trip-making for passenger and truck travel concerning the volume of travel, trip distance, and weekday vs. weekend travel.  The OD algorithms will impute traveler demographics, travel mode, and purpose for passenger trips.  In addition, state and local government agencies participating in the Next Gen NHTS pooled fund study can purchase O-D flow data at more disaggregate geographic zones to understand passenger and truck travel within their jurisdictions.
