Here’s what PAG says about the survey:

This survey marks the beginning of a nearly two-year effort to update the PAG region’s long-range transportation plan. The plan, known as the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), will identify long-range regional strategies to enhance the movement of people and goods across Pima County. When implemented, the transportation improvements are intended to reduce congestion, increase our region’s economic growth, expand transportation choices, and enhance our environment and quality of life. The PAG region encompasses all of Pima County and includes the Cities of Tucson and South Tucson; the Towns of Marana, Oro Valley, and Sahuarita; Unincorporated Pima County; the Pascua Yaqui Tribe; and the Tohono O’odham Nation.

The impacts of the RTP will be experienced by all residents of the PAG region as we look to prioritize over $17 billion in transportation spending over the next 30 years. The money you spend each year in gas taxes, for licensing your vehicle, and in regional sales tax will be used to fund these investments. By participating in this survey you are helping to guide the use of those transportation dollars.

There are a lot of bicycle and pedestrian specific questions that can help regional planners prioritize biking and walking.

Take the survey here.
