SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit Stage public transit system released an electronic transit survey this morning in English and Spanish. The survey, open through November 19th will help the agency identify ways to improve service.
English survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RJF99YG
Encuesta Española (Spanish survey): https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RJF99YG?lang=es
As an integral part of the Short Range Transit Plan (a five-year outlook on transit in Summit County), the survey will ask riders and non-riders what they think about transit.
“If you ride transit, we want to know what you like or dislike about it. If you haven’t ridden for a while, we want to learn why." Summit County Transit Director Chris Lubbers said. “This will help us design, plan and program the next five years of transit in Summit County. We hope that you will take a few moments to click through the survey.”
Summit Stage is Summit County’s free public transportation system, operated by Summit County government. Summit Stage is funded through a voter-approved 0.75% countywide sales tax and provides nearly 2 million passenger trips each year.
Summit Stage is currently operating a Summer Schedule with evening service ending earlier, around 11pm, due the COVID-19 response. Buses run daily and serve most existing stops. Bus passenger capacity is reduced to 50%, which means a maximum of 30 passengers on our typical large transit buses, and a maximum of 25 passengers on our smaller buses. If a bus is full, passengers will need to wait for the next bus. At this time, we do not have the capability to send additional buses when one overloads.
All passengers 3 and older are required to wear a face covering to help prevent the spread of the virus. The number of riders per bus is limited by 50% and physical distancing is encouraged, as much as is possible. On 2-door buses, passengers must use only the rear bus doors for loading and unloading.
All Summit Stage riders must comply with all local and state public health orders.
