Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

67   Surveyed Agencies and Key Characteristics Table 3 represents all agencies that agreed to participate in the survey. Some agencies replied to both the targeted and non-targeted survey. In these cases, the project team reviewed both entries and verified which record was most complete and accurate. An individual consultant also replied to the survey. However, because this response was not associated with a specific agency, this record was not included in the report. The table columns are defined here: • KNOW—Does respondent have personal knowledge of agency SRA methods? • BUS—Does agency offer bus service? • RAIL—Does agency offer rail service? • ON DEMAND—Does agency offer on-demand (paratransit) service? • MICRO—Does agency offer microtransit service? • TROLLEY—Does agency offer trolley service? • ALT MODE—Does agency offer some other mode? • C NONE—Agency does not contract out any service? • C BUS—Does agency contract out bus service? • C RAIL—Does agency contract out rail service? • C ON DEMAND—Does agency contract out on-demand (paratransit) service? • C MICRO—Does agency contract out microtransit service? • C ALT MODE—Does agency contract out some other mode? • SRA—Does agency conduct SRAs? • MIL882—Does agency use MIL-STD-882? • MMIL882—Does agency use a modified MIL-STD-882? • EURO—Does agency use the European common method? • OTHER—Does agency use some other type of SRA method? • SURVEY—Did agency participate in targeted (T) or non-targeted (NT) survey?
