Redwood City Asks Community Members to Make Their Voices Heard With Survey on Possible Shuttle Service
Redwood City, CA - October 25 , 2005 - Redwood City is asking the community to take a few minutes to fill out a survey that will help the City make decisions about possibly developing a shuttle service within the City.
With the renaissance of downtown Redwood City going strong, the City is looking at ways to make it easier for community members to get around town, and one option is a shuttle service. The first step is to learn what the people who live and work in Redwood City think of a possible shuttle service, whether people would use it, where it might go, how frequent, and what the cost might be. The City and the Peninsula Traffic Congestion Relief Alliance have created a survey so that the community can answer these questions, and help determine the potential use and feasibility of a shuttle.
The survey is available online in either an automated form, or as a bilingual printable form. The surveys are also available at all City buildings and community centers, and over 10,000 are being distributed to people’s doors in selected areas of the City. The completed surveys can also be faxed to 650-588-8171. Community members are asked to return completed surveys by November 18th.
Everyone who fills in and returns the survey is entered to win a $50 gift certificate to Target, or one of several $5 gift certificates for Parks and Recreation classes. Surveys must be submitted by November 18th. This is a great opportunity for the community to voice its opinions and ideas about how a shuttle service in Redwood City might work.
The Peninsula Traffic Congestion Relief Alliance is dedicated to addressing the challenges involved in getting to and from work in San Mateo County. Its goal is to people find ways to get to work that are faster, cheaper, and/or easier through commuter information, employer programs, and city transportation demand management partnerships.
