Commuters - Trying Something New With a Data Driven Approach

In a recent Budget & Finance meeting the dilemma of parking for workers in all the new businesses in OTR was brought up and agonized over.
The thing is, the problem isn't really parking so much as getting people to work & back home. And the rash of new businesses does create a new issue.
Greg Landsman as about the only councilman to mention transit altho a guy from Chatfield college did, and Landsman and Tamaya Denard both brought up making data driven decisions. Denard brought up finding new solutions.
So, how about this - survey the new business owners and Chatfield college about where their employees & students come from & when they come & go and then work with Metro to see if any routing & scheduling changes could accommodate these folks?
