Public Input Sought on Transit Development Plan

The public is invited to discuss the future of Lincoln's public transit and provide input into the development of the City's Transit Development Plan (TDP) at two upcoming open houses:

The plan will guide the delivery of public transit services in Lincoln over the next five years. It will include a comprehensive evaluation of the current route design, service levels, ridership and customer amenities to help determine how effectively existing transit services are serving the community.

The public involvement effort for the TDP includes the open houses and stakeholder meetings. A new survey tool called "Build Your Own Transit System" is available at the TDP website at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: TDP). The public can email comments to startraninfo@lincoln.ne.gov, fax ideas to 402-441-7055 or get on the mailing list by calling 402-441-7185.

The City is being assisted by Nelson-Nygaard, a Seattle firm specializing in alternative transportation. The plan review process will take place in May and June, followed by more public open houses in September. The study is scheduled to be completed by December 2015, with changes implemented in the summer and fall of 2016.
