Take Our Short Survey

About the Public Survey:

Whether you don’t have access to a vehicle and use public transportation to do your grocery shopping, require an ADA vehicle that empowers you to have mobility through your community or choose to ride public transportation as a lifestyle choice, we want to hear from you about your transportation needs. And the best way to learn about your specific transportation needs is by completing our online survey.

The purpose of this public involvement effort is to gather information from YOU, both the public transportation users and non-public transportation users in and through McLennan County, to learn about YOUR travel experiences and needs. This feedback will be used to help determine how to better meet the transportation service needs throughout the county. The survey should take only about 5-10 minutes to complete, and we thank you in advance for your time and willingness to participate in our public transportation planning process.
