The Northeast Iowa Mobility Solutions Team is a team of local economic development, transportation and employment specialists selected to participate in the national Job Access Mobility Institute through the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA). The goal of the institute and our Northeast Iowa Team is to ensure that transportation is always the link and never the barrier to employment. The Team has been meeting for some time and has developed some new regional transportation ideas and is now in the concept evaluation stage of their project.
The Team is currently conducting a survey to collect input on the concepts they have developed to help determine the feasibility of the ideas that have been proposed to improve commuter transportation in the region. The video survey can be accessed at: www.EARLtransit.com and is completely anonymous. The team is seeking input from employees, employers and job seekers who live or work in any of these five Iowa counties: Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard and Winneshiek. The survey will be open through Aug 15, 2013. For additional information regarding the survey or the Job Access Mobility Institute project in Northeast Iowa, please contact Karn Pankow, Operations/Mobility Manager at Northeast Iowa Community Action: firstname.lastname@example.org or Karla Organist, Transportation Planner at Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission: email@example.com.
