Northwest Georgia Regional Vanpool Study
The purpose of this Northwest Georgia Regional Vanpool Study is to determine the feasibility of a Vanpool program linking commuters from similar origins to similar destinations throughout the 15-county region. 

This study benefits three major groups: residents who live and work in Northwest Georgia, zero car households seeking employment opportunities in the region, and major employers in the region. 
Input received from the surveys and other outreach efforts will be used to determine how a vanpool program in Northwest Georgia could operate and best serve the residents of the region.

Your feedback is vital to this study’s success! 
If you would like to participate, please visit the website, www.ruralga.org.Links are provided for employers and employees and are available in English and Spanish.
