Survey open to evaluate high-capacity transit in the Treasure Valley

The Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) is exploring options for a future high-capacity transit service, and would like the campus community to participate in a survey to help the association understand user needs.

What COMPASS would like to know is, if a high-capacity transit service, such as bus rapid transit or light rail, was built between Caldwell and Boise, would commuters use it and what would affect their decisions about whether or not they did.

This information will help COMPASS determine the best type of service for the region and where it should go.

Having a high-capacity transit service in place is still likely 20 or more years away, according to COMPASS. Still, the association says understanding community needs is a key step and broad participation is vital to ensuring survey results accurately reflect the community.

Visit the COMPASS website to take the survey, find opportunities to learn more, watch online presentations, or ask questions. The survey will be open through Feb. 27.
