Would you like to have a public transportation option available to the Greater Hansville area? If you answered yes to either question, you now have a chance to do something about it. Kitsap Transit is proposing to conduct a “Pilot Program” in the Greater Hansville area. They have come to the Greater Hansville Community Center Board and offered the use of a commuter van, if a viable “Bus Service Plan” can be formulated within the community. This service will require the participation of the users in both the administration of the service and the operation of the van. We would like to ask that you take a few moments to complete this survey and return it to us at the above address as soon as possible so that we may determine if this type of program will be sustainable in our rural area. If the results of this survey indicate that there is sufficient support for this service we will continue to the next step. If the survey results indicate that there is low interest in this program, the program will likely go no further. We realize that there are hundreds of questions that are yet to be asked or answered; this is just the first step to determine if there is enough support and interest to go further with the planning process. Your answers will determine what the next step should be. Please note that this transportation alternative is not intended to replace or compete with the ACCeSS program in any way. Please check or circle the appropriate answer below. Also, your comments are very important in determining the future of the program. Please provide as much information as possible. 1) Do you believe that the Greater Hansville area needs an alternative transportation service? Yes___ No___ 2) Are you interested in taking an active role in the administration of this project? Yes___ No___ 3) Are you interested in being a van driver for this program?

What do you think is a reasonable fee to travel from Hansville to Kingston $____ Hansville to Poulsbo $____ Other (Place)_____________________$____ 7) If this program moves forward where would you most likely want to go?
