    • Looking at our bus system
  • Major Service Findings
    • Almost 70% of trip purpose are for essential services:
      • 57% to/from work
      • 7% to/from school
      • 5% to/from medical-related appointments
    • Most trips started by walking to stop and most planned on walking to their final destination once exiting bus or ferry
    • About 40% of passengers transfer to another bus
  • Major Service Findings
    • Responses were grouped in two ways:
      • by route type (local routes, MAX, ferry, shipyard, Wave, NET/310)
      • by municipality
    • Similarities and differences can be identified based on:
      • how service operates
      • ridership between the different municipalities
    • Most “route types riders” having been riding the system for more than four years
    • System predominately used by riders five days per week, reflecting the heavy use of the system for work purposes
  • Major Demographic Findings
    • About 80% of the fixed bus riders are “transit dependent”
    • Over 75% of riders are African-American
    • About 50% of riders have an annual household income less than $15,000
    • Just over 50% households do not have a working vehicle
    • Almost 60% of riders systemwide do not have a drivers license
    • Ridership on the system skews slightly older, with a majority of riders 30+
    • Over 50% of riders are female
    • About 95% of riders speak English as their primary language
    • The ferry has the highest usage by military personnel (19%)
  • Major Attitudinal Results
    • The overall quality of service received a score of 3.5 out of 5.0, a “Fair” to “Good” rating
      • Ferry - 4.2
      • MAX - 3.7
      • Fixed Bus - 3.5
    • The major positives for the system were safety on the bus, operator courtesy, and reasonableness of fares
    • The major shortcomings identified by riders are the lack of benches and shelters
    • Also performing poorly were the hours of service, on-time performance, lack of Sunday service, frequency of service, and safety at the stop (ie. Cedar Grove)
