Transportation research study needs volunteers

A research study, the first of its kind in rural San Diego, will collect important information from Ramona residents about their transportation needs and perceptions to determine what types of transportation options are the best fit for the community.

The study is a partnership between the Palomar Pomerado Health Community Action Council’s Ramona Transportation Action Committee (RTAC) and the National Latino Research Center at California State University at San Marcos.

Volunteers 18 years and older are needed to be trained at the two-hour required training and orientation in the Ramona Library on Saturday, Aug. 6, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Volunteers will conduct 25, 15- to 20-minute surveys for a total of 8 to 10 hours.

Each volunteer may choose their 25 survey participants for the study. To register for the training or for more information, contact LaVonna Connelly at

    This doesn't sound very scientific. The only volunteers 18 and older will likely be retirees who probably have different transportation needs that everyone else.
