OahuMPO Opinion Survey – Deadline 5pm on 6/22/16


Dear Community Member,

Do you know who we are? If so, how well do you know us? Are we doing a good job communicating with you about transportation matters important to you? Are you able to let us know your thoughts? Only YOU know the answers to these questions! So, we are using this questionnaire as a way to hear your opinions and improve our processes.

Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization (OahuMPO) is the regional transportation planning organization for Oahu. OahuMPO works with the Hawaii State Department of Transportation, the City and County of Honolulu, and the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation to develop a 20-year vision for transportation for the island and to implement that vision effectively. You can read more about what OahuMPO does and why we exist at

And, of course, we want to work with YOU! OahuMPO is working on ways to better involve the public in the transportation plans that we develop. Do you keep up with our website? Are you more likely to get information about transportation plans reading the daily print newspaper? Or would you prefer to find out about our plans on your social media feed? OahuMPO wants to know the best ways of having a conversation about transportation with you and our community.

So we ask you to please take 10 minutes of your valuable time to complete this questionnaire. Here’s how:

To answer the questionnaire, please click on the “Begin Survey” button at the bottom of this page. As you proceed through the questionnaire, you will be allowed to go back to previous questions if you wish to make changes. However, once you click on the “Done” button at the end of this questionnaire, you will not be allowed back into your response to make changes.

Only Question 1, “Select Your Point of View,” is required. All others are optional; however, we hope you will provide us information we need by answering all the questions.

Your information is confidential and we will not share it with anyone.

You may take the survey anytime you wish before 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22, 2016. Thank you for taking your time to help.
