The City of Evanston is conducting a Transit Planning 4 All (TP4All) survey to gather input on the mobility needs and transportation patterns of older adults and people with disabilities.
All community members are encouraged to complete the survey, at tinyurl.com/EvanstonTP4All, by Friday, March 31. Printed copies are available at the Levy Center, 300 Dodge Ave., and the Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.
In 2016, the City was awarded an $85,000 TP4All grant from the Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Community Living (ACL) in collaboration with the Department of Transportation's Federal Transit Administration to conduct inclusive transit planning research and analysis. The City seeks to embed inclusionary practices into planning efforts, identify transit barriers, and develop recommendations for transit solutions.
TP4All survey responses will be used to help identify improvements and strategies that will continue to allow individuals to age in place in Evanston. Results of this survey will be published in the City's TP4All Report in mid-2017.
TP4All community partners include the Age Friendly Transportation Task Force, CGE Transportation Task Force, Council for Jewish Elderly (CJE), Housing Options, The Merion, Northwestern University, North Shore Village, Over The Rainbow Association, Pace Bus and Shore Community Services.
For more information or to request a printed copy of the survey, email TP4All@CityofEvanston.org or call/text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents may simply dial 3-1-1 in Evanston.
