Monona Transit Public Forum - Tuesday at 6:30 pm

Public Forum on Monona Transit Expansion, 6:30 pm

Date: Tue - 02/28/2012
Time: 6:30 PM
Location: Monona City Hall, 5211 Schluter Rd.
The Monona city council approved the a new 5-year contract with First Student (formerly First Transit and former formerly Laidlaw) that will provide new transit buses and an additional 14 hours of transit service per week without increasing the cost to Monona’s taxpayers.

Resolution 12-02-1838: Approval of 5-Year Contract with First Student for City Transit Services

The Monona Transit Commission is seeking public input on how to best incorporate those additional service hours into the current transit service. The goal of the Transit Commission is to attract new riders without negatively impacting the residents that currently use Monona Transit services.

More runs of the existing route? Extend the existing routes?

From the city's website:

"If you are interested in providing input to the Transit Commission on the proposed expansion to the Monona Express service, please attend a PUBLIC FORUM at the next Transit Commission meeting: Tuesday, February 28 at 6:30 pm at Monona City Hall. Furthermore, please consider filling out this brief survey to tell the Transit Commission how best to incorporate the additional hours of service into the current schedule. Once completed, you can give your survey to the Monona Express driver, drop it off at City Hall, or bring it to the public forum on February 28. Thank you in advance for your input."
