Iowa DOT Seeks Public Input on Public Transit Statewide Plan
October 18, 2019 8:07am
(Ames, Iowa) -- A long-range plan for public transit in Iowa is currently under development. This plan supports the State Transportation Plan, Iowa in Motion 2045, in helping efficiently plan and manage resources for an effective statewide public transit system within Iowa’s multimodal transportation system.
A key part of the plan update is collecting public input. Public feedback is being sought on potential strategies and action items, which will help form the overall system vision and the types of investments and strategies to consider. A survey has been developed to gather more specific public opinion on what the future of public transit should look like in the state.
This survey will open from Friday, Oct. 18 through Friday, Nov. 1.
This survey will build on the results of input received from transit agencies and stakeholders, and initial internal analysis of the public transit system. Survey questions focus on how people want to live and travel in the future and what they think of particular transit strategies.
The survey and information concerning the plan are available online at https://iowadot.gov/iowainmotion/Modal-Plans/Public-Transit-Plan. Please revisit this website regularly to stay informed throughout the planning process. Input from the survey will be used to help shape the investment strategies included in the plan.
