GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) – The City of Grand Island is seeking public input to shape its future public transportation plans.
The public is invited to focus group meetings on Tuesday morning, May 31 in the Community Hall at Grand Island City Hall. Three meetings are scheduled at 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.
City officials are currently developing the so-called GO GI Transportation Plan, mapping out the future of public transit in the Grand Island/Hall County area. In a press release, Transit Program Manager Charley Falmlen said the plan will include an analysis of the Central Ride Agency of Nebraska’s (CRANE) current transit service and develop potential future options in based on current and expected future use. Ultimately, GO GI Transit will come up with an achievable and fundable plan for the next 10 to 20 years to meet the short and long term needs for transit service in the Grand Island community.
The press release also states that the public transit system is important to the community, as thousands of people use CRANE each year to get to work, school, medical appointments, and more. This improves the overall quality of life and leads to a stronger and more vibrant community.
Currently, CRANE serves residents of Hall County, Nebraska and provides portal-to-portal demand response service for the Grand Island/Hall County area.
