Metro Transit Survey

Moving Forward Together: The Metro Transit Five Year Service Plan Survey

Metro Transit is currently developing a service plan for the next five years, and we need your help!

This survey asks you to put yourself in the shoes of a transit planner and make some important choices about how to prioritize transit improvement and service expansion over the next five years. This survey asks you to look beyond the impact these decisions may have on your own neighbourhood, and to look instead at what is good for the whole of HRM.

The questions are broken up into four big topics – for each, you’ll be asked to view a short video clip about the topic, and then answer a few questions. There are no wrong answers, and your insight can help us to develop a transit network that better meets the needs of the community.

After completing this survey, you will have an opportunity to enter a contest for a chance to win an iPad Mini. Contest is open to residents of HRM, 19 years of age or older, excluding employees of Metro Transit, individuals residing with them, or their immediate families. Some restrictions apply. To view the Official Rules, click here.

So, let's get started!

Note: In order to complete the survey, you will need to register and sign in if you haven't already. You can do this by clicking "Register To Get Involved" or "Sign In" above. Survey closes October 15th.

 

CLOSED: This survey has concluded.
