More Public Input Sessions on Transit Service Changes
Post Date:02/18/2020 4:06 PM
Chapel Hill Transit is preparing service changes to begin in August 2020. Staff will be available to discuss these changes at four public events:
Monday, Feb. 10, from 5-7 p.m. in the Board Room of Carrboro Town Hall
Wednesday, Feb. 12, UNC Off-Campus Housing Fair from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. (UNC students and staff only) in the Great of the UNC Student Union
Thursday, Feb. 13, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Carolina Springs (residents only)
Wednesday, Feb 19, from 5-7 p.m. in Room 109 of Carrboro Town Hall
These sessions will not have a formal presentation, but participants will be able to engage with transit staff, review maps and ask questions about the proposals. Input given at sessions will be used to help our planning team to create final route maps and schedules which will be shared again in late spring.
These service changes are products of Chapel Hill's Short Range Transit Plan, which was made with public input in 2017 and 2018. Service changes are meant to improve service frequency on major transit routes, maintain transit access to the communities we serve, simplify the bus system and improve weekend service, using our existing financial resources.
