HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – The 66th Civil Engineering Division Commuter Management Office here will conduct a rideshare survey Sept. 25 through Oct. 6 to learn more about the commuting behaviors of employees.

Personnel will be prompted to complete an anonymous and voluntary survey at the startup screen when they log into the Air Force network, either on base or remotely.

“Your inputs may result in solutions that optimize commuting, reduce congestion and enhance the daily lives of those who travel to work here,” said Scott Sheehan, an environmental engineer with 66 CED.

This annual Clean Air Act survey complies with a Massachusetts environmental regulation and takes less than five minutes to complete, according to Sheehan.

Questions include interest in vanpool and carpool commuting options and offer employees an option to sign up for additional information.

“By reducing the amount of drive-alone trips, Hanscom Air Force Base employees will help Massachusetts reduce air pollution, traffic congestion and spending on road construction and repair projects,” said Sheehan. “Federal employees are also eligible for a stipend to cover public transportation commuting costs.”

According to Sheehan, federal employees can receive $300 per month to pay for commuting to work via vanpool or public transportation.
