Around town: Variety of programs


The North Florida Transportation Planning Organization (NFTPO) and the Florida Dept. of Transportation (FDOT) are sponsoring the North Florida Travel Survey to better understand residents’ transportation needs. This is important because the information collected in this survey will help improve the regional transportation system and prioritize future transportation improvements. The survey is currently underway to late November.

The transportation survey is collecting information on day-to-day travel and activities in  Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns Counties.

As thanks for participation, following survey completion each participating household will be entered in a drawing for a grand prize of an iPhone X, or one of 25 $100 Amazon or Walmart gift cards.

To take the survey, go to and use the password: Survey.
