Nashville (AP) -- The Tennessee Department of Transportation told legislators Tuesday about the department's customer satisfaction survey.

The poll said TDOT's road programs graded higher than its non-highway programs.

About two in five respondents said they were dissatisfied with the frequency and availability of public transportation in the state.

That compares with fewer than one in ten residents who said they were dissatisfied with the interstate highway system in the state.

The results were from a poll of two-thousand residents conducted by the independent ETC Institute.
