The Treasure Valley's transportation planning agency needs some help to craft better traffic flows in downtown Boise. In fact, the Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho—better known as COMPASS—is willing to pay for the input.
Residents of downtown Boise are being asked to participate, and their opinions are apparently worth $20.
COMPASS, which began reaching out to Boiseans late last week, is asking households to provide specific information on an average day's travel, including destination addresses or intersections, travel time and mode of travel.
The results of the data are expected to be used to map travel patterns in downtown Boise.
COMPASS defines the downtown core as bordered by the Boise River on the southeast and southwest, Broadway Avenue on the east and Fort Street on the northeast.
COMPASS officials say the survey will be used for planning highways and public transportation.
Interested participants can contact ETC Institute, which has been contracted by COMPASS to conduct the survey, at 1-888-801-5368.
