Transit Survey

The CMPO is conducting a transportation survey to identify the transit needs and opportunities for improvement in our local transit systems. We would like to get input from all citizens regardless of what type of transportation mode you normally use. If you are a regular CR Transit bus commuter, Neighborhood Transportation Service (NTS) rider, Linn County LIFTS customer, or even if you have never used transit before; we want to hear from you.  

All residents of Cedar Rapids, Ely, Fairfax, Hiawatha, Robins, Marion, and unincorporated Linn County are welcome to participate; your responses will be kept anonymous. This survey will only be used to improve transit service within our community. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes. 

To access the survey just click on the link below (paper copies will be provided at the GTC):

At the end of this survey you may enter to win a 31 day adult CR Transit pass, prepaid by CR Transit. Entering the drawing is completely free and your contact info (name, email or phone) will not be shared or used for anything other than contacting you as a winner of the drawing. Entering the drawing is optional if you would rather remain anonymous. 

The survey will be remain up until January 26th at 1145pm. We would like to see as many responses as possible in the next two weeks, so please forward this along to your friends, colleagues, customers, or anyone that you feel might have an interest in improving transportation in our metro.

Retail/Service Business Survey
In November, several members of our business community received our retail/service business survey by mail or e-mail asking fifteen quick questions.

In our effort to better affect each of you and act as a partner in helping you connect with our residential community by adding a new stream of customers and new revenue, we are requesting your feedback through the month of January.

The City's goal is to continuously provide resources and improve our support of the business community. By filling out the survey, we can gauge satisfaction and the direction you would like to see us move toward in supporting each of our local businesses. Expressing your opinions and rating our performance will help guide our approach in how to best connect you with and what role you need us to play in your recipe of success.

The survey can be completed online at If you received a survey in the mail and can't find it, you can also download the survey from our website here and mail it to the City of Hiawatha, 101 Emmons Street, Hiawatha, IA 52233.

Thank you for your participation. We look forward to continuing to serve our Hiawatha business community.
