MassINC Polling Group is Conducting a Survey on Employee Use of Public Transportation

The MassINC Polling Group, with support from The Barr Foundation, has asked us to reach out RAM members and ask you to fill out this online survey about commuting and working from home as the state reopens from the coronavirus. Your responses will be analyzed alongside those from workers across the Commonwealth, to help us, other businesses, and policymakers understand what reopening means for traffic and public transit.

The survey will close on Monday, June 22. Don’t miss your chance to make your voice heard. Thank you!
