Open house/presentation May 14 on first State Transit Plan

       Seeking to coordinate and improve mass transit statewide, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will hold an open house Wednesday, May 14 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
       The location will be the lower floor of the Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG) building, which has a parking lot in front of it at 14 S. Chestnut St.
       A formal presentation will begin at about 6 p.m., a press release states.
       The goal is to create CDOT's first Statewide Transit Plan. “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,” the release continues. “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.”
       Other open houses are being held around the state this spring. “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,” the release states. “Then it will be integrated into CDOT's Statewide Transportation Plan.”
