uGO March Update

With fish fry season upon Cleveland, we know spring is right around the corner! And whether or not you've given up meat on Fridays, consider doing something good for the environment by giving up your car in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. If you work or live in or near University Circle, consider applying for the #DitchYourCar challenge.

GreenLink Service Change

Starting March 16th, the GreenLink shuttle will no longer operate on a timetable. It will operate on a continuous loop between CWRU's north campus area and the Cedar-University RTA rapid station. During peak times (M-F 6:30-10:00 a.m. and 4:00-6:30 p.m.), there are two shuttles on the route, and frequency is approximately every 15 min. During non-peak times (M-F 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and weekends), there is one shuttle on the route, and frequency is approximately every 30 min. Shuttle users are strongly encouraged to use the uGO shuttle page or the TransLoc rider app to track shuttles in real-time.
University Circle Shared Mobility Survey Results

We shared early results of the University Circle shared mobility survey in the February newsletter. We learned that of all survey respond ents (270 people), sixty three percent have never taken a shared e-scooter/e-bike trip, and 18 percent have only taken one trip. We group those respondents into a category called "Once or Never Ridden." The other respondents ride at least once per month, and we group those respondents into a category called "Habitual Riders."

This graph shows the 5 star ratings for "all respondents." When we separated out the responses for "Once or Never Ridden" and "Habitual Riders."
