The Colorado Department of Transportation’s Division of Transit & Rail is holding an open house next week on how best to improve public transit through Northern Colorado and enhance connectivity to other parts of the state.
Citizens are invited to attend on Wednesday, May 7, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Greeley Ice Haus, 900 8th Avenue in Greeley. A formal presentation will begin about 5:30 p.m.
CDOT is gathering feedback on how best to enhance local, regional and human service transportation needs as part of developing a comprehensive and integrated transit system for Colorado. It includes examining various aspects of transit, including what services currently exist, where there are service gaps, future requirements and how much funding will be needed.
This is the first of five open houses being held next month in the state’s largest urban areas. CDOT already has conducted 17 open houses in the state’s non-urban regions. All of the information gathered from these forums will be integrated into the Statewide Transit Plan, which is expected to be completed in early summer 2014. Then it will be integrated into CDOT’s Statewide Transportation Plan.
