The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, is interested in commercial driver perspectives on several critical industry issues.  This survey contains questions for two separate research initiatives summarized below.   

Transportation infrastructure funding: these survey questions seek driver perspectives on the issue of traffic congestion and how the U.S. should fund transportation infrastructure.

Driver shortage:  survey questions on why drivers choose trucking as a career, what keeps drivers in trucking and why drivers choose to leave the industry.

All responses on this survey will be kept strictly confidential and will only be reported in aggregate form.  Due to the sensitivity of this research, under NO circumstances will we release any of your personal or organizational information.
