PORTLAND — Portland Downtown is conducting an online survey about how people get around on the peninsula.
The survey asks a series of questions about how people get around, how they perceive the ease of movement and parking, and how public transportation is used. It will be available through Aug. 1, with the goal of providing a report on the results by early fall.
Portland Downtown is partnering on the project with the city, the Greater Portland METRO bus service, Portland International Jetport, the Northern New England Passanger Rail Authority, which operates the Downeaster train, and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine.
The ultimate intent is to use the information to develop a marketing campaign aimed at changing perceptions and behaviors with regard to transit, according to Adam MacDonald, marketing and communications coordinator at Portland Downtown.
