goHunterdon is providing staff assistance to NJ TRANSIT to survey riders of the Hunterdon County LINK Transportation Service on Route 15, Route 16, and Route 21. The three routes are funded in part by the Federal Transit Administration’s “Job Access Reverse Commute” (JARC) program which was established to address the unique transportation challenges faced by welfare recipients and low-income persons seeking to obtain and maintain employment. The survey is a requirement of federal funding.
The goal of the survey is to collect information on the benefits and impact of JARC funding on riders and their ability to access employment. Respondents will be asked a series of questions including the length of time that they have used the service, how they would make a trip if the service were not available, where they got on the bus, and how long their trip will take as well as a series of questions related to socio-demographics.
The survey is being conducted on board LINK vehicles to offer a convenient way for riders to provide input into their use of the service. Respondents have the option of taking the survey via a computer tablet, scanning QR code and responding via their own smart phone, or completing the survey using a paper copy. All responses will remain confidential.
