GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The TriTown Connector, in conjunction with the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, asks South County residents, students, employers and employees to complete a brief survey of the TriTown Connector transit service in South County.
Survey participants can choose to enter into a drawing to win a $25 gift card to local businesses, including Big Y.
Researchers aim to learn how the TriTown Connector (TTC) has altered the travel patterns of its riders since the program began in May 2023, and also to obtain a baseline for what travel patterns may look like in rural neighboring communities that don't have a similar "call-for-service" public transit option. TriTown Connector is an appointment-based, low cost transit program serving South County communities.
"We are working to help shape future transportation services, and hope that everyone will participate," said Tate Coleman, microtransit program director of TriTown Connector and principal investigator of this study from UMass-Amherst.
The six-to-10 minute survey asks questions about public and senior transportation in Southern Berkshire County. Questions relate to the TTC microtransit program, but the survey is open to non-TTC users who reside in Berkshire County as well. 
"We also encourage people to share this survey link with others," said Coleman.
