Merrimack Valley Access to Jobs Survey Help us improve transportation challenges across the Merrimack Valley! Recruitment and retention concerns are often exacerbated by mobility needs of employees. Many of you may have concerns with respect to employee commuting challenges – worksites oftentimes are not located within reasonable access to public transportation or public transportation days/hours of service may not meet the needs of your worksite. Many employees do not have access to or choose not have personal transportation. The Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce, Merrimack Valley Planning Commission, and the Merrimack Valley Transportation Management Association invite you to share your perspective and points of view in this brief survey. The results of this survey will help us learn about the specific challenges you face in order to identify and develop opportunities for collaborative solutions to transportation across the Merrimack Valley. This survey should take about 8-10 minutes. If you have any questions about this survey or project, please contact Betsy Goodrich at email@example.com. Thank you for your time! OK Question Title * 1.
