  • TRP News: Take the annual TRP survey

    Take the Two Minute Challenge: Take two minutes to complete the annual Travel Reduction Program Employee Survey and beat our response rate last year of 48.6 percent. We need your response between October 1 and October 31, 2017. 

    As a bonus incentive: complete the survey and provide your name for tracking purposes at the end of the form. Your survey will remain anonymous and you’ll be entered in a random drawing to win a Loop jaguar jersey, Desert Dwellers Know poster, or a prize from Sun Rideshare. jaguar

    As part of our obligation to meet the national air quality standards and Pima County Ordinance No. 1988-72, Pima County employees are required to take this survey annually. All employers within Pima County with 100+ employees are required to complete this survey each year. Data from it is used to measure alternative mode usage across the region and calculate emission savings, which is reported to the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. The data is also used by area planners to evaluate transit routes, road projects, and plan for future infrastructure needs.

    Please complete and submit your survey within the next week (and no later than October 31, 2017).
