The public is invited to attend one of four public engagement meetings next week to discuss the StarTran Transit Development Plan (TDP) to improve transit services in Lincoln:
Those attending will be able to view route maps, and StarTran and consultant staff be available to answer questions and address concerns about the TDP. The proposed plan can be viewed at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: tdp).
StarTran Transit Manager Mike Davis said public input was used to develop a "preferred scenario" to provide service more effectively within StarTran's existing budget. It calls for offering later service in the evenings on eight routes; 30-minute, all-day weekday service on "O" Street; and a crosstown option on Route 48 for passengers to travel north and south without transferring downtown.
The public is also able to provide input and find out more about the TDP in the following ways:
The TDP will guide the delivery of public transit services in Lincoln over the next five years, and changes would be implemented in the fall of 2016.
