Salt Lake City Transit Master Plan – Please provide input!

Our neighborhood’s input and suggestions are needed to complete the SLC Transit Master Plan ….

If you’re concerned about local transit, here is your chance to say something and to get involved.

The attached link “SLCRides.org” provides information and updates about the Transit Master Plan.  It also has a “game” which simulates decision making for local transit. Please take a few minutes, try it and provide your input.

We’ll be discussing localized transit, the status of the Master Plan and the findings of this study with SLC officials at our April Council Meeting, April 20, 2016.

Thanks!
