IDB and Ministry of Works launch survey on Park and Ride Service

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in conjunction with the Ministry of Works and Transport (MOWT) are launching a survey to find out if commuters are willing to use a Park and Ride service.

In the first instance, this service will be dedicated to commuters from the East and South.

Car owners would have the option to park their cars in a well-secured location and be shuttled to and from their destinations. Others may choose to be dropped to the station or cycle or walk there.

Internationally a Park and Ride Service has been known to cut commuting times by 50 per cent.

The IDB says it feels this could be a welcome improvement for many nationals.

Three main features of the Park and Ride will be secure parking, comfortable shuttle services and an app to track in real time the arrival and departure of the shuttles.

Additionally, there will be a customer feedback feature which will allow for immediate comments about the quality of the service.

Trend Media is hosting the survey on behalf of IDB/MOWT to find out the preferences of commuters when using a Park and Ride.

The results of the survey will guide the design and implementation of Trinidad’s first Park and Ride service.
