Press release from The Coalition for Responsible Transportation Priorities:
The Coalition for Responsible Transportation Priorities has released a survey to gather information about how North Coast residents get around their communities, and how they feel about the transportation options available to them. The survey asks residents how much they walk, bike, drive, and take the bus. It also asks their opinions about each of these modes of transportation, how they decide what mode of transportation to use, and how they’d prefer to get around.
“Transportation is such an integral part of our lives that we often don’t think much about it,” said Colin Fiske, the Coalition’s Executive Director. “But the options we have for moving around our communities have huge impacts, not only for our daily lives but also for our health, our neighbors, our environment and our economy.”
The survey asks whether people think that various local modes of transportation are safe, comfortable, and convenient, and how they feel about the impacts that these transportation options have on their communities and the natural environment.
“If we’re going to get people using healthier, more environmentally friendly modes of transportation, we first have to understand what they’re doing now and why,” said Fiske. “Unfortunately, there’s very limited information available on these topics here on the North Coast. So we’re hoping that this survey is just the first of many over the coming years that will document local transportation attitudes and how they change, and help inform local decision-makers and advocates.”
All North Coast residents are encouraged to fill out the short survey, which should take about 10 minutes to complete. A link to the survey is available on the Coalition’s home page at transportationpriorities.org.
