One Joplin Seeking Input on Transportation Survey

Transportation impacts every facet of daily life, going to the doctor’s office, picking up groceries, or going to work. For many in the Joplin region, transportation options are limited and closure of the Joplin Trolley further complicated access to basic needs. One Joplin is on a mission to advocate for citizens through a Transportation Survey.

One Joplin facilitates communication and collaboration among regional organizations and volunteers in the areas of Education and Literacy, Health, and Poverty. The Poverty Team is asking for assistance in survey participation. Survey results will be compiled and shared with regional leaders in order to advocate for citizen needs and explore additional solutions to the transportation crisis.

Brent Baker, co-chair of the One Joplin Poverty team shared, “Transportation disproportionately impacts low-income, disabled, and elderly citizens. We want to advocate for their needs and work with regional leaders to find a solution.”

Nicole Brown, Executive Director of One Joplin explained, “Since the Trolley’s pause in November 2022, partner agencies and volunteers have expressed concerns about its impact on clients. Conducting the survey will give citizens a voice.”

The survey can be completed here, and flyers will be distributed by partner agencies to encourage participation.
