WICHITA, Kansas – Are you frustrated with Wichita’s public transportation? City officials want to know about it.
Transit officials will be holding meetings Oct. 29th and 30th to find out what problems are out there.
They particularly want to focus on getting people on west side of town onto city buses, even if they don’t live on a bus route.
They’ll be starting a new neighborhood feeder service would actually pick people up and shuttle them to the nearest bus stop.
“It’s really important for us to get it right,” says Wichita Transit Director Steve Spade. “To develop routes and go where the public wants us to go.”
The transit system was recently awarded a $1.8 million grant that will fund the service improvements. They hope the changes will draw more people to use the system, which is important because the money will run out in 2015.
This week’s meetings will be held Tuesday at the Wichita Transit Center on S. Topeka from 3:30-5:30 pm.
A second meeting will be Wednesday the 30th from 5-7 p.m. at Northwest High School.
Information from the public will be gathered through November, and then presented to the City Council and Transit Advisory Board in December.
If approved, the changes would start going into affect in March.
