BC Survey

03/31/2019 - 6:00pm
Dear Mattapan Residents,
Do you find yourself frustrated by a lack of convenient public transit options in your community? 
Additionally, are you concerned by how ride-sharing apps like Uber or Lyft may affect your daily commute?
Our names are Grace Marra, Elena West, and Annette Heffernan, and we are undergraduate students at Boston College in the Environmental Studies Program. With the help of the Massachusetts chapter of the Sierra Club, we are researching ride-sharing and its impacts on the MBTA system. Our research aims to explore how apps like Uber or Lyft are being used in different Boston communities, and how the inequality of public transportation options in these neighborhoods may be worsened by the introduction of ride-sharing.
During the next few weeks, we are conducting a survey of the Mattapan community to gain a better understanding of how Mattapan residents regard and use the MBTA system and ride-sharing programs. 

The survey is very brief and will take less than 3 minutes to complete (we’ve timed it!). Please click the link below to go to the survey Web site (or copy and paste the link into your Internet browser).
