Colorado Springs, Colo. (Sept. 1, 2010) ?  The Steering Committee for the Future of Regional Transit study will hold its second monthly meeting (open to the public) at 1 p.m., Sept. 10 at the Pikes Peak Regional Development Center, 2880 International Circle, second floor Hearing Rooms A/B.

During the meeting, committee members will begin to discuss transit systems of other communities throughout the U.S., including key terms for understanding how public transit is operated and funded and how Mountain Metropolitan Transit compares to transit providers in peer cities on important measures of service, ridership, and cost. They will also begin a more detailed discussion about how transit in the Pikes Peak region could be improved.

Steering committee members include representatives from each of the municipalities and jurisdictions within the study area, other government agencies, community organizations and citizen groups. The committee will provide its recommendation, which will include a plan to implement the recommendation, to the City of Colorado Springs City Council in February 2011.
