The Northstar Corridor Development Authority (NCDA) invites residents to provide feedback on Northstar Commuter Rail in an online survey.
The survey includes questions such as: Does Northstar Commuter Rail’s schedule meet your needs? Which station do you use to catch the train if you ride? Do you think Northstar is an affordable transit option?
“Feedback to questions like this is very important to us,” said Anoka County Commissioner Dan Erhart, NCDA chair. “It doesn’t matter if you have ridden the train or not. We hope residents will take time to complete this brief survey to help us and Metro Transit make future service decisions.”
People who take the survey can enter a drawing for a Metro Transit Go-To Card with $22 in stored value. The card may be used on Northstar and other transit operated by Metro Transit. Survey participants may choose to enter their contact information at the end of the survey to be entered into the drawing. Survey responses are confidential.
