Community Values Survey Results

Several weeks ago, we approached Washtenaw County residents with a survey to gauge priorities and values regarding local transportation improvements.  Surveys in hand, staff visited local farmers markets, public meetings, and community events. WATS is happy to announce that we collected more than 600 responses.  The map below highlights the number of responants per community.

WATS is working hard to incorporate your feedback into our 2040 Long Range Plan, but we'd like to share some highlights with you here.  Below, you can see two charts showing the primary and preferred travel mode of survey respondants. While the majority of respondants(77.5%) reported using a personal car for their primary transportation mode, a similar majority (72.4%) would prefer alternative means of travel.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to complete a survey. For more details on the results, visit one of our 2040 Long Range Plan Public Meetings.
