The El Dorado County Transportation Commission, who you probably know as EDCTC, and El Dorado Transit are teaming up to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality in the region by transitioning the public transit bus fleet to zero-emission buses

But what exactly is a zero-emission bus? What are the benefits of this transition? And how will this affect you and your community? Watch the informational video below to learn about this countywide effort, and then scroll down to answer a few questions and help inform our plans. This questionnaire will be open through July 30!

Let's get started!

Question Title

Do you have any thoughts or concerns regarding the different electric bus technology options?

Question Title

EDCTC and El Dorado Transit are considering rolling out the electric bus fleet to neighborhoods that are located in the County’s disadvantaged or low-income areas. Do you agree with this prioritization?

Question Title

If you answered Yes to Question #2, are there specific neighborhoods that you think we should prioritize rolling out the electric bus fleet to?

Question Title

Do you regularly ride El Dorado Transit? (2+ times a week)

Question Title

If yes: When El Dorado Transit begins operating the new zero-emission buses, do you see yourself riding transit more frequently? 

Question Title

If no: Would El Dorado Transit’s new zero-emission bus fleet encourage you to ride transit?

On-Demand Transit

Question Title

An on-demand transit service allows you to book a ride to any location within your community. After using a smartphone app or calling in to book a ride, you would receive an estimated time of arrival. You may be asked to travel a short distance (think a couple blocks) to meet your ride. In minutes, an El Dorado Transit bus or shuttle would pick you up and take you to your destination. You would share a ride with passengers traveling to other nearby destinations. Similar to a bus fare, you would pay a small fee for each trip.

Text reads: How on-demand transit works - Book your ride by calling in or using a smartphone app; walk, bike, or roll a short distance to meet your ride; an El Dorado Transit vehicle will pick you up and take you to your destination; pay a small fee for each trip you take.

Question Title

Do you see yourself or your family / friends in the El Dorado region using on-demand transit in the future?
