Last summer, Delaware County Transit unveiled a new transportation service called FLEX which allows passengers to call same day and choose their pick up and drop off location within the city of Delaware.

Passengers get an automated call that their bus is 10 minutes away. Riders are then asked to be ready and waiting at the curb.

Travel times on FLEX are averaging less than 15 minutes due to the fact that passengers don’t have to ride a full fixed route to get where they want to go. DCT’s passenger, Tony, says “I like that instead of having to ride the full route to get where I want to go, it’s faster and more direct – less time spent traveling, more time at my destination.”

Now DCT is seeking to expand this service, and is turning to the community to assess its needs.

In particular, it is looking at expanding the hours that FLEX is available later in the evenings and on Saturdays. By answering a short survey, you can not only provided needed input into this decision, but you will be entered into a drawing for a $50 VISA gift card.

The survey is available here.
