Coordinated Transportation Plan - Rider Survey

Coordinated Transportation Plan - Rider Survey

The Nashua Regional Planning Commission is conducting a transportation survey to update
the Greater Nashua/Souhegan Valley region's Locally Coordinated Transportation Plan (LCTP) for
human service/community transportation. We are asking for your help to determine how
community transportation can more effectively meet the mobility needs of those who live in our
region.


"Community Transportation" is a term that refers to a range of services that help people get where
they need to go, including public bus services, senior shuttles, hospital vans, volunteer driver
programs, or privately owned wheelchair accessible transportation services. By answering this
survey, you will provide us with information that can be used to help improve transportation service
options in the Nashua region. Your feedback is important.


If you have any questions about this survey, please contact:
