HONESDALE (Feb. 10, 2020) – Wayne Tomorrow! charged the Transportation Task Force with identifying the changing needs and challenges of transportation in Wayne County and they are seeking input from our area businesses.

Among the first orders of business for the Task Force, which is chaired by County Transportation Director Carl Albright and Nancy and Shawn Garing of Garing Transportation, has been assessing the current challenges faced by local employers.

In November, the Transportation Task Force gathered some of the area’s employers to talk about the challenges transportation plays in their efforts to recruit and retain quality employees. As a result, the Task Force developed a survey for all employers in Wayne County, large and small, to assess the broader need for transportation services.

The eight-question survey aims to learn more about scheduling and late shifts as well as what business owners may be doing to tackle their employee transportation issues, and from where their employee pool comes.

Wayne Tomorrow! Community Network Specialist Kim Rickard will be visiting many of the local business districts to encourage participation, but all employers are urged to complete and submit the survey.

You can fill it out online or request a paper copy from KRickard@WayneCountyPA.com.
