Lane Transit District Survey

Please fill out the Lane Transit District 10-minute Survey to tell the state how you travel and what you think about the available travel options.

At the end of the survey, you may enter a prize drawing to win one of two $100 Amazon gift cards!

In April, 2015, the Oregon Department of Transportation adopted its first statewide Transportation Options Plan. “Transportation options” programs expand the opportunity for people to travel by providing education, outreach, and resources on how to take the bus, bike, walk, share rides, and telecommute.
As part of implementing the ODOT Transportation Options Plan, Point2point at Lane Transit District is conducting an ANNUAL SURVEY to better understand how people currently travel and the awareness and satisfaction of their current transportation options program offerings.

Your participation will help inform future transportation options program investments in our community and expand transportation options and access for all.

This survey will close on February 23, 2018

Egan Warming Centers – Volunteers Needed

The Egan Warming Centers provide warm, safe places to sleep for people who are experiencing homelessness on nights when the temperature drops to 30 degrees or below. Tonight – Tuesday, December 12 – will be the 9th night in a row that Egan has activated. The Centers rely heavily on volunteers, so long activations can make it challenging to maintain adequate staffing and ensure that the Centers can stay open. There are different roles to fill, from kitchen crew and safety to general staffing support and helping with donations. A New Volunteer Orientation & Training will take place next Tuesday, December 19, at 6 pm, at First Christian Church, 1166 Oak St. More information can be found at www.eganwarmingcenter.com.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
