D.1.2 Public Transit

Action

Conduct community outreach. Research, develop and implement a public transportation plan that includes construction of (and signage for) safe, well-placed transit stops and amenities throughout the downtown. 

Why

Public transportation easily connects people to local businesses, jobs, education, places of worship, social events, food resources and more throughout the downtown, and this encourages economic development. It can also be a more healthy, environmentally friendly, affordable, and fun way to get where you need to go.

How
  • Conduct research and hold community outreach events regarding the needs and desires for public transportation downtown. 
  • Develop and implement a public transportation plan that improves safety, links transit to housing, food resources, employment centers, and connects to the downtown. The plan should also include attractive transit stops and amenities. 
  • Develop and implement and plan for advertising available transportation options.
