The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is seeking public input through a statewide transit survey, which is open through August 14, 2019.
The survey can be taken by anyone on GDOT’s website — www.GDOTtransitsurvey.org.
The objectives of the survey are to:
- Identify needs and priorities of public transit users and potential users
- Understand the public transit customer experience
- Identify issues and barriers to using public transit
The survey website is available in multiple languages. Paper versions of the survey are being distributed to rural transit providers across the state. The survey results and findings, along with input from other stakeholder groups, will help shape the GDOT Statewide Transit Plan (SWTRP).
GDOT is developing the SWTRP in coordination with local governments, Regional Commissions, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and transit providers to quantify public transit needs across the state and document strategies to ensure all Georgians have access to public transit.
The purpose of the GDOT Statewide Transit Plan is to coordinate with local governments, planning agencies, and transit providers to document transit needs across the state and prioritize future investments. The plan will support GDOT’s multimodal planning efforts and identify strategies to ensure all Georgians have access to public transit.
More information on the entire plan can be found on GDOT’s Transit website: http://www.dot.ga.gov/IS/Transit/TransitPlan
