Survey targets JBSA travel patterns

As part of Joint Base San Antonio master planning efforts, the 502nd Air Base Wing is conducting a Traffic Points of Origin study to evaluate and assess travel patterns of military, retiree and civilian populations at Fort Sam Houston, Camp Bullis, and Lackland and Randolph air force bases.

The study comes in the wake of expected growth within JBSA. Located in one of the nation's largest cities and fastest growing regions, expansion of the military missions at JBSA has increased the demand on San Antonio's Metropolitan Area transportation systems and resources.

To balance JBSA's continued growth with the community's transportation needs, it is important to understand the origin and destination of traffic associated with JBSA's military installations, according to headquarters 502nd ABW officials at Fort Sam Houston.

The study will identify areas of traffic flow, installation oriented travel trends, places of origin/destination and primary modes of travel, with an overarching goal of providing a framework for future transportation and land-use decisions between the installations.

As part of the study, a web-based Origin-Destination survey has been developed to collect important information on JBSA personnel travel patterns.

The targeted population for this survey includes all JBSA active-duty service members, reservists, Department of Defense civilians and contractor, retirees and dependents 18 years of age and older who travel on and around JBSA installations.

Military officials urge eligible members to take the survey, which will be available online starting Saturday at

Each respondent will receive a coupon for a free cup of coffee at any JBSA AAFES Express store, formerly known as the shoppette. Participants will be automatically entered to win one of three prizes - a $100 gas card, or one of two $50 exchange gift cards.

Results of the survey will be made available in January 2012.
