WORCESTER – Bus riders in Worcester are being asked how the bus system is performing during the pandemic.

The Worcester Riders Advisory Committee [WRAC] has created a survey asking riders to share their thoughts on the Worcester Regional Transit Authority [WRTA] bus system during the COVID-19 crisis.

The WRAC is a group of residents and community leaders — namely, City Councilor At-Large Gary Rosen — looking, in part, to transition the city’s bus system to a fare-free system.

The survey is made up of eight questions/forms to provide opinion and input.

Take the survey here.

There’s a Public Safety and Transportation Committee meeting on Monday,June 1 at 5:30 PM to further discuss the possibilities of a fare-free system, the feasibility of using the WRTA system to bus Worcester Public School students, and how the WRTA plans to use federal funding.
