The public is invited to one of two meetings this week to discuss the StarTran Transit Development Plan (TDP) to improve transit services in Lincoln:
Those who are unable to attend a meeting can provide input or find out more about the TDP in four ways:
Transit Manager Mike Davis said StarTran officials began the TDP process by looking at ridership, on-time performance, travel patterns and demographic data.
"Public meetings and surveys indicated that residents want StarTran to offer more frequent and direct service and to offer service later into the evenings," Davis said. "Public involvement is crucial to the TDP process, and we need residents to give us their input on the three scenarios we have developed to meet those needs."
Davis said the TDP will guide the delivery of public transit services in Lincoln over the next five years and he expects to implement any service changes in the fall of 2016.
