As of noon 123 people have taken the time to fill out a Why You Ride (or Don’t) survey – thanks!
We’re pretty happy with the numbers – it’s not a particularly short survey and we’ve asked readers to do some critical thinking when it comes to answering some of the questions – so getting over 100 people to donate their thoughts is pretty great.
That being said, it wouldn’t hurt to have more, especially on the ‘Why You Don’t Ride’ side. So far there’s been 92 ‘Why You Ride’ surveys completed and 31 ‘Why You Don’t Ride” surveys submitted. Like I said before, more results mean a more complete picture of how our readership feels about transit in L.A. and what they want from Metro.
Here’s a quick taste of what some of the data is telling us so far:
In our ‘Why You Ride’ survey, we asked: “Briefly, how would you describe your typical transit experience?”
- 47 responded “I love it!”
- 40 responded “I deal with it.”
- 5 responded “I hate it. There has to be a better way.”
We asked a similar question on our ‘Why You Don’t Ride’ survey: “Briefly, how would you describe your typical driving experience?”
- 4 responded “I love it!”
- 18 responded “I deal with it.”
- 9 responded “I hate it. There has to be a better way.”
If those numbers don’t represent your personal point of view, there’s only one way to change the pie slices. Take the survey yourself!
Here are the links:
- Why Do You Ride? Take this survey if you’re a regular transit rider.
- Why Don’t You Ride? Take this survey if you don’t take transit regularly.
And we’ll continue posting the individual surveys, but keep in mind we have a lot to go through so yours might not show up on the site for some time.
