The City is conducting an older adult and senior mobility survey to understand the fears seniors may have while using multiple modes of transportation in the community,
We would like to provide seniors with the opportunity to express their concerns about their mobility and eventually be able to direct them to the options they have to feel safe while travelling. Conducted by Port Coquitlam Community Policing in partnership with ICBC, Metro Vancouver Transit Police, Translink and Coquitlam RCMP, the survey is the first step in identifying resources that would help older adults feel safer as they move around Port Coquitlam.
Results from the survey will be used to identify the need for new and improved mobility options throughout the community, and move forward conversations for improvements with municipal, regional, and provincial governments, as well as transportation service providers. After the survey results are analyzed in late March, the project will move into its second phase, including a community engagement strategy to be released in the late summer or fall.
Complete or share the survey by March 15, 2022. Have your say! Those who complete the survey in full by March 15 will be entered in a draw to win one of five gift baskets from the City and community safety partners. One entry will be accepted per person.
Together with you, we want to explore:
- What concerns do seniors have when it comes to personal safety when mobile in the community – driving, taking transit, or on the street as a pedestrian or cyclist?
- What is missing for seniors to feel safe?
- How can we all work together to promote community safety for seniors?
Personal information entered on this survey is collected under the authority of section 26(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) and will be used to better understand older adult and senior mobility safety in the community. If you have any questions or concerns about how your information will be used, contact the City’s communications division at 604.927.5499 or [email protected].
