CE rideshare survey begins June 3 Published May 23, 2019 By Mark Wyatt 66th Air Base Group Public Affairs HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – The 66th Civil Engineering Division’s Commuter Management Office will administer a survey June 3 to June 14 for employees who commute here for work. Employees can find the survey at https://org2.eis.af.mil/sites/21911/CE/Lists/hacas2019/overview.aspx. The survey consists of 15 questions, including how employees commute to work and gauging interest in vanpool and carpool commuting options. The survey also provides employees with an option to sign up for more information. “The Hanscom Commuter Management Office is continuously seeking ways to identify available commuting options and setting goals for reducing drive-alone trips,” said Scott Sheehan, CE environmental engineer. “The results of this survey will help our office grow the number of commuting options that employees have access to.” CE officials were able to add nearly 300 names to a list for those interested in a vanpool through last year’s survey. That list helped fill van vacancies. Hanscom personnel can learn about commuting options available to them through the Hanscom Commuter Management Office SharePoint page. “By reducing the amount of drive-alone trips, Hanscom personnel will help Massachusetts reduce air pollution, traffic congestion and spending on road construction and repair projects,” said Sheehan. “Federal employees may also be eligible for a stipend to cover commuting costs.” The survey complies with the Massachusetts Clean Air Act. “The Commonwealth requires the survey for all personnel who commute to Hanscom Air Force Base,” said Scott Sheehan, CE environmental engineer. “The survey asks general questions about your commute to the installation and takes less than five minutes to complete.” According to CE officials, the survey is voluntary and responses are anonymous. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection carries out the Massachusetts Rideshare regulation, which is a statewide air quality regulation to reduce air pollution and to achieve and maintain health-based federal air quality standards. For further information about the annual Clean Air Act survey, or any of the commuting options available to Hanscom personnel, contact Sheehan at 781-225-6144 or John Tamvaklis at 781-225-6151.
