SIERRA VISTA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Public input sought by Sierra Vista and ADOT on five year Vista Transit plan.

Public opinion is sought at the Feb. 11 meeting about the study to create a plan for the Vista Transit public bus system, to cover the next five years.  The study will be conducted by the City of Sierra Vista and the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Up for discussion at the meeting will be the challenges and opportunities the Vista Transit system may experience with changes to federal funding.  These changes could mean a reduction in federal assistance to Vista Transit, which has served the city since 1994 and in 2012 experienced a seven percent increase in riders from the previous year.  

The meeting is scheduled for Feb. 11 at 5:30 p.m. at the Windemore Hotel (2-47 S. State Route 92, Sierra Vista).  Public comments and questions will be taken after a presentation at 6 p.m.  Information provided by attendees will go to help form a new five-year plan for the bus system.  Topics for consideration in the new plan include priorities for continuing transit, whether there are unmet needs for the system and how well the service is currently performing.

This study will help officials evaluate what changes are needed to comply with the new federal funding formula, which will take effect in October 2014.

For more information about this study and the public meeting, contact the Project Hotline at 1-855-712-8530, or email at Projects@azdot.gov.
