Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Public Transportation to Survey Commuters about Commuting Habit Changes Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

The Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Public Transportation (CTDOT) is conducting a survey of Connecticut commuters about changes to their commutes, as well as their thoughts on commuting when returning to work in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The brief online survey will allow CTDOT to collect basic data about current and projected commuting habits, and how commuters foresee their commutes when returning to work. The survey takes only a few minutes to complete and will also ask how workers commuted before the pandemic. Information from the survey will be shared with state and local transit operators and will directly assist in tailoring and modifying services to best meet the needs of Connecticut commuters.

CTDOT will also be reaching out directly to employers that partner with CTrides to request employee participation in the survey.  CTrides and local transit systems will also promote the survey through social media and emails.

The survey can be accessed through Monday, July 27, 2020, here, or by visiting www.ctrides.com/survey.
