Mountain Metropolitan Transit Solicits Public Input on the Regional Public Transportation Plan
Mountain Metropolitan Transit (MMT), the City of Colorado Springs' Transit Services Division, invites the public to comment on future transportation needs. Although this transportation plan is called the "2035 Regional Public Transportation Plan Draft", important transportation issues need to be addressed long before the year 2035. Along with Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG), MMT is hosting a meeting to solicit public input. The meeting will be held at PPACG, 14 S. Chestnut Street, on September 22, 2011, 4:00p.m. - 7:00p.m. The meeting will be held in an open house format allowing citizens to drop in anytime between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
"The 2035 public transportation plan evaluates existing transit services, assesses financial resources, identifies future travel needs and recommends a strategy to best meet those needs. Public input is an important part of this process," commented Craig Blewitt, transit services division manager.
The 2035 Regional Public Transportation Plan draft is available on the City's web site.Citizens do not need to attend the open house meeting to comment. Comments can also be given via email at firstname.lastname@example.org through October 14, 2011. Citizens may also send comments via mail to:
