Lawrence transit hosting public meeting to seek feedback on potential bus transfer locations

Lawrence Transit is conducting an analysis to evaluate potential locations where users of both the City of Lawrence and University of Kansas transit systems can make transfers. A public meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 29th from 5-7 p.m. to discuss potential sites and their benefits. The public meeting will be at City Hall in the Commission Room, 6 East 6th Street.

This meeting comes after four months of community engagement and technical analysis on this topic. A meeting and survey in August asked members of the public to discuss community values and how those relate to a future location for transit transfer activity. A second survey in October asked the public to prioritize benefits, such as travel time versus operating cost savings, in order to focus site location analysis. This meeting on November 29th and a companion survey will ask the public to review potential sites and analyze them based on items the public identified as important in the previous surveys. The survey will be available at https://lawrenceks.org/lawrence-listens/ starting November 29th.

The public meeting can be accessed by Lawrence Transit Routes 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11 and 15. More information about the project, as well as trip planning and transit routes can be found at lawrencetransit.org/bus-transfer-location-analysis.
