COMMUNITY SURVEY NOW UNDERWAY FOR THE YUBA-SUTTER NEXTGEN TRANSIT PLAN
September 8, 2022, Marysville, CA – To reverse a long-term negative ridership trend that was greatly accelerated by the pandemic-fueled collapse of 2021, Yuba-Sutter Transit recently launched a top-to-bottom study of its existing network of public transportation services. Known as the NextGen Transit Plan, this study seeks to better understand how, why, and when people travel by any means in, around, and beyond Yuba and Sutter Counties for the purpose of making specific recommendations on the optimal design and scope of the local transit system that would best meet those needs within realistic financial constraints.
A key objective of the NextGen Transit Plan is to collect as much public input as possible on how Yuba-Sutter Transit's existing services work and what improvemenets could better connect the communities served. As part of that process, Yuba-Sutter Transit is inviting everyone, whether they have ever used their services or not, to complete an online survey regarding public transit in (and beyond) Yuba and Sutter Counties.
Completing the survey takes only a few minutes and the input will help shape local mobility improvements for years to come. The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZPQ6TJ6 or simply use a smartphone camera to scan the QR code on the imbedded survey posted. The survey, which is available in English, Spanish and Punjabi, will be available through the end of October.
More information and a project timeline are available on the project website at www.yubasutternextgen.com where visitors can also register to receive plan updates including notifications of future input opportunities. All future project work products including the results of the online survey will be posted on this website.
