TOMPKINS CONSOLIDATED AREA TRANSIT, INC.
Employment type: Temporary Part-Time
Number of Openings: 6 positions
Hourly Wage: $17.97
NOW HIRING: Transit Ambassador
TCAT is seeking motivated individuals to serve as Transit Ambassadors. Ambassadors will gather feedback and input from their communities on TCAT’s Transportation Development Plan. The Transportation Development Plan, a process most public transit systems undertake every 10 years as industry best practice, will evaluate TCAT’s existing system in order to identify and to improve service.
TCAT’s last Transportation Development Plan was implemented in 2010 with a comprehensive system overhaul that was based on surveys and numerous public information sessions. With its most recent Transportation Development Plan now underway, TCAT hopes to capture an even broader range of public input with the help of Transit Ambassadors who will serve as liaisons between TCAT and their own networks and connections.
After a paid training in transit planning and community engagement strategies, they will conduct surveys, assist with focus group discussions, and do other outreach tasks with community-members to learn about how they use TCAT, the barriers that they face to using transit, and the improvements in service they would like to see going forward. The Transit Ambassadors will serve a critical role in amplifying the voices of those traditionally not involved and represented in transportation planning and those that may experience additional transportation barriers.
