(DAYTON, OHIO) … Whether it’s work, school, medical appointments, or helping out a loved one with mobility issues, the Greater Dayton RTA is asking the community “what drives you,” and influences your transportation needs via a new campaign and survey. The transit agency will hold several events to gather feedback, with the next event on Thursday, March 21 from 4-6 p.m.

The RTA’s What Drives You campaign focuses on how public transit serves the needs of the region by asking the community “What drives you?” The initiative is an in-depth review of RTA’s routes, using feedback and job growth patterns to develop a more dynamic transportation system over the next two years.

“Our community is evolving, and so should our transportation,” said Jessica Olson, RTA communications manager. “We want to know—what drives you? What motivates you to get out and be a part of the community, and how would you like to get there? We want to build a transit system that fits those needs, so we’re asking for community feedback to make that happen.”

The What Drives You event on March 4 will introduce the public to redesign ideas and ask them to give feedback on how they would model their own public transit needs. The event will offer stations to explain transit ideas, along with a survey. Those who spend the time to complete the survey will receive a What Drives You t-shirt.

Another event is scheduled for March 21 from 4-6 p.m. at Wright Stop Plaza, 4 S. Main St., Dayton. Customers and community members are encourage to attend one of these events to share their feedback and help shape the Miami Valley’s future transportation system.

WHERE: Wright Stop Plaza passenger concourse, 4 S. Main St., Dayton.
