COTA Seeks Input on the Future of Transit in Columbus
What should the future of public transit look like in Columbus? The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) wants your input as it conducts its Transit System Review. The organization hosted a focus group meeting in January and is soliciting additional public feedback through an online survey.
“We always welcome public input and comments and encourage everyone interested in helping to shape COTA’s future bus network to complete the TSR Survey,” said COTA Senior Service Planner Elliott Doza. “Your feedback and all public comments will be shared with our project team as alternate bus network concepts are designed.”
The new concepts will take into consideration both ridership and coverage components of the Columbus transit system and the planners hope to showcase the pros can cons for developing different types of bus systems around each focus area.
COTA will continue their outreach through a series of public meetings the week of March 17th that will showcase the alternate bus network concepts. Project managers hope to further refine the concepts based on public input at those meetings and have a more finalized concept to share with a focus group in May.
