Announcements about other upcoming opportunities for public engagement will be posted on social media, as well as the Route Redesign page of the Lawrence Transit website: https://lawrencetransit.org/route-redesign/.

Public input received about the two proposed scenarios will inform a final recommended scenario. This will be shared with the public before the end of the year. Route changes will be implemented in August 2022.

The redesign of transit routes in Lawrence is happening concurrently with the planning and construction of a new multimodal transfer facility on the southeast corner of Bob Billings and Crestline, as well as an improved transfer location serving Downtown Lawrence.
