Neighborhood Survey on Your Transportation Preferences
Your neighborhood associations need to hear from everyone, regardless of your chosen modes of transit. Please note this is NOT an LTD sponsored survey.
Your immediate, anonymous feedback is critical: Lane Transit District (LTD) has proposed the most dramatic bus system changes in its history to promote what they hope would be an overall increase in system ridership. Details are available at: https://transittomorrow.org/.
This survey was designed by the Southeast Neighbors ad hoc committee on transportation as a way to help all neighborhoods collect more detailed information on how community members use (or don’t use) buses in our neighborhoods and how Transit Tomorrow may impact neighborhoods. The information we collect will help facilitate dialogue and responsible decision-making with the LTD Board of Directors. A final plan will be voted on by the board in June 2020.
Estimated time to take this survey: 4 minutes
For almost a year, Beyond Toxics has been surveying households in West Eugene neighborhoods to learn about air quality and health conditions residents are facing. Bethel neighborhood, the area where we have been canvassing, is where 99% of Eugene’s air toxic emissions are released from industry facilities. We are now asking residents across the city to take our online survey, so that we can expand and also contextualize our knowledge.
Our right to clean air and water is our right to life. Residents of Eugene’s westside neighborhoods–where polluting industries are overwhelmingly located–have to fight harder for this right. Air doesn’t stay in one zip code, we all breathe dirty air! Whatever your neighborhood, you can help Beyond Toxics document our community health concerns.
Visit BeyondToxics.org and look for the link on the bottom right: “If you live in Lane County, you can take our Environmental Community Health Survey.” The survey takes just 7-10 minutes to participate. Thank you for helping achieve environmental justice and a healthy community.

Take Our Survey
LTD is proposing major changes to bus routes. LTD proposes to remove routes and stops and give more frequent service to certain locations increasing the number of riders walking 1/2 mile to the bus stop. The idea is to increase ridership, but many riders (data on these riders is unknown by anyone) may be left under served. The issue is very complex. Several neighborhoods that are most dramatically affected, are organized and having meetings with LTD. I do not know how our neighborhood residents living adjacent to the bus routes on Willamette, along 29th, 28th, 24th, & Chambers (maybe Crest?) use the buses. There is little or no data available. The changes are based on “points of contact” with the community — maybe opinion polls. If any of you use buses or if you know bus riders who want to be involved, the Southeast Neighbors has a committee actively working on these issues.
The proposed changes on routes on East Amazon, Fox Hollow, Willamette and Donald greatly concern SEN bus users. Additionally, other neighborhoods in North and West Eugene are also concerned and involved with questioning LTD.

Here is LTD’s “people trips” baseline, which estimates (by number) how many people and businesses are within walking distance of the stops for each line.
