Take the Governor’s Oklahoma United We Ride Council Survey

Improve your ride take the survey.

The Governor’s Oklahoma United We Ride Council developed a short survey to gather some information from public transportation riders.  Individual Riders may access the 10-question survey by going online to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2JFGX97 or by clicking on the SURVEY link from the United We Ride Council’s website: www.MyRide.ok.gov

Purpose of the Survey

The survey intends to ask individual riders for input. The information we accumulate will help the United We Ride Council identify unmet transportation needs across the state and will help the Council in developing strategies for meeting those needs. This survey is different from the UWR/ODOT 2011 Transportation Survey which allowed transit providers, government agencies, and advocates of aging, disabled, and low-income populations to share their opinions about transportation.

We want to hear what riders have to say about their own transportation experiences. So the survey is not intended for transit providers. The survey is not intended for government agencies or entities that advocate for people with disabilities, but counselors of an agency/entity may help individual riders access the survey to answer the questions.
