CDOT Seeking Input on Southern Colorado Transit

May 7, 2014 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - COLORADO SPRINGS – The Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) Division of Transit & Rail is holding an open house at the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG) office next week on how best to improve public transit through southern Colorado and enhance connectivity along the Front Range.

Citizens are invited to attend on Wednesday, May 14, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at PPACG, 14 South Chestnut Street, in Colorado Springs.  A formal presentation begins about 6 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 gaps in service, future requirements, and how much funding will be needed.

This is the third of five open houses being held this month in Colorado’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.
