As a former analyst in a transit planning department, I know that communicating plans and gathering feedback from the public can be a major challenge. Adding to that challenge is the current pandemic situation, which makes in-person engagements unlikely, at least for the near future. To help transit agencies meet these challenges, we developed the Community Engagement Solution. This solution allows you to:
- Adapt to changing communication trends
- Increase public participation in the planning process; and
- Build community consensus
The solution includes configurable Hub pages to disseminate information and schedule events, both in-person and virtual. Surveys and crowd-sourcing applications are available to gather feedback with a dashboard to monitor your engagement efforts. Community Analyst is included to help identify target populations and develop marketing strategies to engage a wide cross-section of your community.
The Transit Community Engagement Solution is available as a package that can be deployed by Esri Professional Services---it includes the software, configuration of Hub and surveys, and knowledge transfer---and can modernize your engagement approach with a set of flexible, configurable applications.
