Customers Encouraged to Fill Out Online Survey From Monday, May 15 Through Sunday, May 28
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced its Spring 2023 Customers Count Survey launched today, Monday, May 15, for New York City Transit, Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Railroad, and Access-A-Ride Paratransit customers. The results of the online survey identify key attributes of service that are important to our customers, provides the MTA with a better understanding of how customers currently rate the service, and where to direct future resources for the greatest improvement in the transit system.
“It's great to see customer satisfaction continue to rise across the transit system including subway, bus and commuter rail,” said MTA Acting Chief Customer Officer Shanifah Rieara. “By listening to the voices of riders through these surveys, we can continue to focus on what customers care about most – reliability, cleanliness, and safety – and how to make their journey as enjoyable as possible."
Customers can take the Spring survey online from now through May 28 at new.mta.info/survey. The survey is available in English, Spanish, Korean, Haitian Creole, Bangla, Chinese, Russian, Italian, and Portuguese, with a telephone option available for customers in need of assistance. Customers who complete the survey will be entered into a random drawing to win a $50.00 OMNY gift card.
Results of the survey will be available in July.
