| Monday, Sept. 14, 2015, 2:21 p.m.

Pittsburgh is asking people about their daily commutes to help officials make better decisions about transportation issues.

Mayor Bill Peduto on Monday along with the Green Building Alliance and other organizations urged city commuters to take an online survey that is collecting information about travel habits.

The survey takes three to 10 minutes to complete and can be found at www.makemytripcount.org .

“As Pittsburgh continues to grow, it's important that everyone takes the Make My Trip Count commuter survey so that we know how people get into town on a regular basis, which will help us improve our region in the process,” Peduto said in a statement.

The survey asks commuters about travel destinations and modes of transportation to determine travel patterns into Downtown, Oakland and the North Shore.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
