Allen County: Provide feedback on transit needs, gaps

Posted on 05/10/23

Fort Wayne Age Friendly Survey Cover

Update – May 25, 2023
The Community Transportation Network and its partners in Northeast Indiana have an another opportunity available to provide feedback on public transportation in the region. They have a questionnaire that Hoosiers in and around Allen County can complete in order to help assess transportation needs and gaps. The survey can be found here and runs through June 30.

Older Hoosiers across the state count on transit for visiting friends and family, getting to the doctor, grocery shopping, and much more.

It’s critical to provide feedback and information that can help identify needs and service gaps – and that is exactly what the Northeastern Indiana Regional Coordinating Council (NIRCC) is asking older Allen County residents for.

“Hoosiers should be able to stay in their homes as long as they want,” AARP Indiana director of outreach Emily Gorman said. “Reliable and accessible transit can help make that possible – especially if a person cannot or does not want to drive a car.”

Currently, the NIRCC is working to complete the 2023 Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan for Allen County, and they want your input via a survey.* The survey is open through June 2.

“Older people, individuals with disabilities, and people with limited incomes should make their voices heard,” Gorman said. “This is an opportunity to make sure our friends and neighbors who need transit most can access it.”
