Greater Bangor Area Employer Survey For Transit Study
The City of Bangor and its municipal partners that contribute to the operation of the regional Community Connector bus service have launched a study to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the current level of public transit service and to determine how to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the transit service in the region. A critical component of the study is market research to determine the satisfaction of current riders with their service; to determine what characteristics of transit service would entice new ridership; and this survey to determine employment-related interest and needs for transit service in the greater Bangor urbanized area.
The Employer Survey ( https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/bangoremployer ) will take approximately ten (10) minutes to execute. Once you have completed the Employer survey, please make the attached Employee Survey ( https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/bangoremployee ) available to your employees as well through your company online portals. This data will be used to determine if there are employment-related needs for transit services that are not being met. These surveys must be completed by March 22, 2019, in order to complete the study on schedule.
Should you have questions or need support in posting the survey on your online portals please email Laurie Linscott at email@example.com.
Your participation and input is appreciated.
