Public Invited to Transit Plan Meeting Next Week

December 2, 2013 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - FORT MORGAN – The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) wants to hear from the public as it moves forward to create a statewide transit system.

CDOT’s Division of Transit and Rail is in the process of developing its first ever comprehensive Statewide Transit Plan, which will provide a framework for an integrated system that meets the mobility needs of Coloradans

An open house will be held to present information and gather public input regarding the transit plan on Wednesday, December 11, at the Fort Morgan City Hall Council Chambers, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  A presentation takes place at 5:30 p.m.

“Public input is a very important part of the process,” said CDOT Senior Transit and Rail Planner Tracey MacDonald.  “In order to create a coordinated statewide transit system that functions efficiently and effectively for the citizens of Colorado, we need to hear from the general public and especially, we need to hear from transit users, to better understand and address the transit needs within the state.”

In addition to the Statewide Transit Plan is the development of Regional Coordinated Transit Plans for the state’s rural areas. These Regional Plans will be integrated into the CDOT Statewide Transit Plan and the Regional Transportation Plans (also underway).
