Census Tract Pairs (Journey to Work)

I have a researcher looking for a dataset that would contain a list of pairs of Census tracts where one CT represents a person’s home location and the other their work location, along with the number of people who make that specific commute (based on the Census Journey to Work questions). Is this data available, perhaps as a custom tabulation?

We’ve received the following response from the regional office:

“Yes it is possible.  It would be CT of residence by CT of work within a CMA or CA.
He is looking for specifics CMAs/CAs and for other variables?”
