Transit Study Discussion Coming

Posted: Updated:

Minot's growing population is driving the need for a revamped transit system in the Magic City.

Earlier this year, a consulting team was hired to perform a study of Minot's existing transit system to look at its ability to serve city residents.

They used the information to determine how the city transit system can achieve better routes and longer hours.

The preliminary proposal is complete and now the city wants to know what Minot residents think of the plan.

Two public discussions will be held where residents can weigh in on the proposal and offer their own insight on the public transit system.

(Brian Horinka, Minot City Transit Superintendent)"The public can come in and look at what they're proposing, see if they think it's what they want, have any changes, suggestions, things they'd like to see done differently. This has been very much public driven. We had about 800 responses to different surveys during the year and they have tailored this system to what most people have wanted."

The meetings are this Wednesday at 11am at the MSU Student Center and Thursday at 4 pm at the Dakota Square Mall.
