OLYMPIA – Members of the Ferry Riders Opinion Group (F.R.O.G.) will have an opportunity to share their views about Washington State Ferries in mid-April. The Washington State Transportation Commission (WSTC) is launching its biennial ferry rider survey and encourages the public to participate. The survey is conducted online and will be emailed to all members of the F.R.O.G. Anyone can join the F.R.O.G. panel by going to: www.ferryridersopiniongroup.com.
The F.R.O.G. survey panel was created in 2009 as a way to actively engage ferry riders and those interested in ferries on an ongoing basis. There are currently more than 6,000 F.R.O.G. participants. Members of the F.R.O.G. have the opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns on a variety of ferry topics via several online surveys throughout the year. Results of all surveys are reported to the state legislature and state decision makers, including Washington State Ferries.
Participation in the research is voluntary. Individual survey responses are kept confidential and are only used for statistical purposes. The WSTC encourages all ferry riders, and those interested in ferries, to join the F.R.O.G. and play an active role in WSF’s future.
For more information on the F.R.O.G. and past surveys visit the WSTC web site at: wstc.wa.gov/FROGSurvey/default.htm
