UTRU wants to learn more about the ridership habits of women and non-binary individuals and why they do and do not choose to use transit at proportional levels. A 2019 Survey conducted by RSG found that 41% of riders on UTA, for example, are women despite being just over half of the general population.
One of the reasons for this, UTRU feels, is due to concerns related to safety and transit. We want to identify these concerns and are seeking comments on ways to potentially address them.
Please know that identifying information (such as email addresses and names) will be anonymous and potentially identifying information (such as route usage or zip codes) will only be published for general aggregate data collection. Questions related to joining UTRU will be used for internal use only, however, comments will be available for review, so please avoid personally identifiable information if possible (UTRU will attempt to scrub such information prior to publication).
We expect that the survey will take you no more than 10 minutes, and we thank you for your participation!
NOTE: We have closed the poll and will release the information as soon as possible.
