Open Houses & Online Survey Look at Potential Redesigns for Area Transit Systems

Iowa City Area Transit Study reimagine your ride

***Updated January 28, 2020, to include a link to the possible scenarios for redesign and online survey for feedback***

Original news item:

Whether you are a regular transit rider, only ride the bus occasionally, or have never been on a bus, the City of Coralville wants your feedback about possible scenarios to redesign our transit system.

Open Houses
Coralville, the City of Iowa City, and the University of Iowa will each host a public open house in late January for the community to provide input about the improving public transit systems. The open houses include a brief presentation at 6:00 pm, and then opportunities to weigh in on scenarios for redesigning the area transit systems, including possible route changes. A total of three open houses are scheduled:

  • Tuesday, January 28, 2020, 6:00-8:00 pm, Iowa City Public Library (Meeting Room A); free on-demand transportation to get home every half-hour during open house
  • Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 6:00-8:00 pm, Iowa Memorial Union (Divine Nine Room #335); free Iowa City Transit shuttles between downtown interchange and IMU from 5:30 to 8:15 pm
  • Thursday, January 30, 2020 6:00-8:00 pm, Coralville City Hall

The possible scenarios presented at the meeting are based on information gathered during an earlier phase of the area transit study.

The Iowa City Area Transit Study is looking at many aspects for our transit systems. For Coralville, this includes routes, stops, ridership, hours of service, and more. The study also looks at coordination between Coralville Transit, Iowa City Transit, and University of Iowa (CAMBUS). An earlier phase of the area transit study included a “Design Your Own Transit System” survey to gather opinions about which aspects of the transit system are most important, feedback at public meetings about ways to improve local bus service, research, ridership data, and on-board bus surveys.
