      • Looking at our bus system
    • 20. 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
    • 21. 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
    • 22. 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%)
    • 23. 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)
