Metro has released a survey on its website, asking employers and employees about their plans for returning to work to better design its rail and bus services during the District’s reopening process.
“Metro is getting ready to restore more bus and rail service as the region gradually reopens and more employees return to Metro for their travel needs. In order to provide the best possible service, we need some information about how your commuting patterns might change if you’ve been working remotely,” the transit agency said its statement.
The questionnaire includes the questions whether any employee in the business stopped traveling to work for an extended period between March and now, while they traveled to work in February and whether the ones who stopped started commuting to work again.
It asks how many employees at the DC area business/organization are estimated to be traveling to their workplaces instead of telecommuting from home, whether the business has a plan or schedule for bringing employees who are currently teleworking back to the office.
Metro also wants to learn about the challenges the businesses and organizations are facing while they are trying to get back to normal.
“It’s a simple questionnaire that takes a couple minutes to complete,” Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld previously said about the survey. “Every employer who has workers riding Metrorail or Metrobus is asked to go online and tell us when your workforce is returning on site.”
