CITIZEN OPINIONS ON PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION ROLES, SERVICE, AND FINANCING

This report summarizes the results of a recent statewide public opinion survey conducted in 1000 households across New York State. Topics addressed include opinions on public transit performance, transit needs, public participation, transit users, automobile-oriented policies, and funding sources and financing. Results of the survey indicated that (a) New York State residents think that regular dependable local bus service is the most important transit need, (b) transit is used most frequently by middle-income (rather than low-income) groups, and (c) there is strong support for special services or lower fares for the elderly and handicapped. /Author/
