PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SURVEY
Frontier MPO News - Posted February 18, 2014 - 1:19pm
The Frontier Metropolitan Planning Organization has partnered with Fort Smith Transit and the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department to conduct a feasibility study to expand Fort Smith transit service into the City of Van Buren. Results of the On-Board Rider Survey (Oct 2013), conducted by the Frontier MPO, indicated that of 171 current public transit users, 159 or 93% would utilize transit service to commute to and/or from Van Buren if service was provided. MPO staff interviewed transit users on each of the fixed routes (currently five (5) fixed routes: Rogers Downtown, Midland, Grand, Towson and Rogers Super Center), surveys were made available throughout the months of September and October 2013 on fixed routes, demand response (or para transit), trolley service and the Frontier MPO website.
Van Buren residents will soon receive a business reply mail postcard with their utility bill to get public feedback on public transportation needs in the City of Van Buren.
