Survey participation

After the launch of its early stages at the beginning of 2017, TRA intends to develop the instruction guide of this program, to help service centers develop its service facilities for the public, hence, achieve the 5 stars rating.  In this regard, TRA wishes to hear from customers about the provisions that can be included in the instruction guide of the initiative. Therefore, TRA launched a survey to the public which includes a set of questions that can help find out people’s opinions about ERTEQA and the providers’ services, and the provisions and points that can be part of the instruction guide. 


Expected decisions upon the advice:

TRA will work on the analysis of the participant’s views in the survey and will come up with recommendations that will be submitted to TRA concerned departments for consultation and guidance.  And because there are relevant parties in this matter, which are the service providers, TRA will present the provisions within its direct consultation with the service providers. Ultimately, TRA will present the instruction guide for the program and will circulate it to the service prviders and their centers. The guide will be available for public viewing on the TRA official website.
