Household Survey Findings

Share this:

In fall 2019, the SFMTA's Residential Parking Policy team administered a household survey of residents of multi-family buildings with 50 or more units, located within SoMa, South Beach, Rincon Hill, Mission Bay and Dogpatch.  The targeted buildings were divided between RPP Areas and areas not covered by RPP to allow for comparisons. A total of 118 buildings were selected. Godbe Research Associates (GRA) administered the survey to a total of 18,810 addresses.  From those, the SFMTA received 2,207 valid responses. Individual responses were anonymized and only building-level addresses were provided (no individual unit numbers were provided to SFMTA). Surveys were mailed in four languages: Mandarin Chinese, English, Filipino and Spanish. Residents were asked questions regarding vehicle ownership, travel behavior (such as parking and commuting) along with sociodemographic information.  

There are multiple sections to the survey findings:  Census Data Analysis; Vehicle Ownership and Travel Behavior Differences Across Socioeconomic Groups; Parking Policy Impacts on Parking and Vehicle Access
