Four County Community Foundation (4CCF) and Lapeer Transportation Collaborative, with support from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund, are conducting this survey as part of a larger research effort to improve public transportation available to seniors, specifically for improved health outcomes. Thirteen of the eighteen townships in Lapeer County currently have no regular public transportation available. The townships with no public transportation are located on the far east side of the county. Several recent surveys conducted in this region to measure health and wellness impacts have identified transportation as a frequently listed challenge. Those studies were broad and did not focus on the nature and impact of transportation challenges. We intend to gain additional information specific to transportation needs through this survey and the larger research effort.
This brief survey can be completed in less than 10 minutes and will help 4CCF understand the current unmet transportation needs and gaps in access to services throughout Lapeer County for any reason and age group. The information will be used to help determine if additional public transportation options are needed and feasible.
Thank you in advance for your time! We cannot do this research without you! We will not ask for your name or address and individual survey responses will not be made public.
