Transit staff to provide information and tours of potential transfer facilities

The City and KU are currently working with a consultant to determine a design for the new main bus transfer location at Bob Billings and Crestline. In addition, the consultant is working to determine the best location and concept development for a smaller downtown transfer location. Both transfer locations are scheduled to be completed in August 2022. The concepts and designs can be viewed on the Lawrence Transit website at https://lawrencetransit.org/transfer-facility/.

The public is being encouraged to provide ideas and feedback on these two future transit facilities.
