People with Disabilities and Older Adults:
Help Improve Transportation Services in the Fairfax Area!

January 4, 2013 in Community News, Transportation

Fairfax County wants to better understand the travel patterns and transportation needs of people with disabilities and older adults who live in Fairfax County, City of Fairfax and Falls Church.
Consider taking this brief survey now. Your answers will help the county improve transportation services to older adults and people with disabilities.

The questionnaire consists of 27, mostly, multiple choice questions. We estimate it should take about 10 minutes to complete.

If you are helping someone complete this survey, we thank you in advance but caution you to ensure that the responses are from the respondent’s perspective.

If you require an alternate format of the survey, please contact Jill Clark at 703-324-5874, TTY 703-449-1186.

The survey is sponsored by the Fairfax Area Mobility and Transportation Committee, which reports jointly to the Fairfax Area Disability Services Board and theFairfax Area Long Term Care Coordinating Council.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Jill
