Consider commuting by train? Take the survey

Fermilab is exploring the possibility of providing a daily shuttle to and from a nearby Metra Rail station for those commuting by train.

The implementation of a shuttle depends on your feedback. Please take this three-minute survey on train commuting to the laboratory by May 9.

Shuttle transportation helps solve the “last-mile problem” faced by train commuters who, after traveling 35 miles in some cases to get to Fermilab, must figure out how to get the rest of the way from the station to the laboratory.

Using public transportation helps reduce our carbon footprint. According to the American Public Transportation Association, by taking existing public transportation instead of driving a car, a single person saves 4,800 pounds of carbon dioxide per year.

Take the brief survey to help us gauge interest in the shuttle.
