rural transportation needs assessment
We are looking for your feedback!
Red Deer County is conducting a Transportation Needs Assessment.
The purpose of the study is to establish the need for transportation services, such as public transit, ride sharing, and taxi.
Please share your thoughts via our survey at https://www.surveymonkey.ca/r/RDCMove.
We are also looking for individuals to join our focus group meetings. Meetings will be held in mid-June and will only require an hour of your time. If you are interested, please email Kendra Bauer at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up via the survey.
