APPENDIX B
Copy of Questionnaire

COVID-19 Pandemic Transit Response and Partnerships Survey

During the COVID-19 pandemic, transit organizations took on roles outside of their normal scope of work to serve their communities. Some partnered with other public and private organizations to implement initiatives in response to the public health crisis, including but not limited to providing access to COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, delivering food and medicine, and providing internet access to support distance learning.

The Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) is collecting information on these partnerships that formed for COVID-19 response and recovery in order to improve emergency response planning and inform future partnership collaboration. Please complete the following survey on your organization’s pandemic response, non-traditional transit initiative(s) implemented, and/or partnership(s) to aid in this study. At the end of this survey, we invite you to submit specific examples from your organization. We are looking to identify examples from practice to feature in the forthcoming report.

Section 2: Non-Traditional Transit Initiatives in Response to COVID-19

  • Provide Transportation to COVID-19 Testing Sites: Provided transit services to COVID-19 testing sites that were not a part of a regular transit route.
  • Mobile COVID-19 Testing Clinic: Used transit vehicles to host a mobile COVID-19 testing clinic that traveled to different parts of the community to offer COVID-19 testing.
  • COVID-19 Testing at Transit Hub: Hosted a COVID-19 testing site or clinic at a transit station, center, or stop.
  • Provide Access to Vaccination Sites: Provided transit services to vaccination sites that were not a part of the regular transit route.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a disproportionate impact on historically marginalized communities—including Black, Latino, and low-income individuals, as well as older adults, and people with chronic health conditions or disabilities. As transit agencies build toward recovery and rethink or reimagine their operations, they might consider grounding their decision-making in equity principles.

The TRB Transit Cooperative Research Program's TCRP Synthesis 167: Partnerships for Equitable Pandemic Response and Recovery identifies how transit agencies were able to quickly pivot during the pandemic to deploy resources for other temporary “incidental uses” and respond to the need for essential services. Through these incidental uses of vehicles and facilities, public transit agencies across the country kept workers actively employed while expanding equitable access in unprecedented ways.
