Transit Study: City seeks feedback on possible route changes

A graphic promoting Transit Study events in the Iowa City area.

Come give feedback on possible changes to the Iowa City-area transit system at three Transit Study open house events.

Based on public comment received from the first round of input, the public will have an opportunity to weigh in on various scenarios for a transit system redesign. After a brief presentation, residents can provide feedback that will help develop a preferred service scenario this spring.  

The scheduled meetings are:

  • Iowa City – Iowa City Public Library Meeting Room A
    • 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020.
    • Free on-demand transportation will be provided to get participants home from the event every half-hour during the open house.
  • University of Iowa – Iowa Memorial Union #335 Divine Nine Room
    • 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020.
    • Free Iowa City Transit shuttles between Downtown Transit Interchange and IMU from 5:30 to 8:15 p.m.
  • Coralville – City Hall Council Chambers
    • 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020.

The City has adopted a Climate Action Plan which calls for a shift of 55% of vehicular trips to more sustainable methods of transportation such as biking, walking, or transit, in order to meet greenhouse gas emission reduction goals by 2050.

In order to reach these goals, the transit system will need to meet the needs of a greater number of residents and visitors.

In response, the City Council authorized an agreement with transportation planning firm Nelson-Nygaard Consulting Associates for a Comprehensive Operations Analysis (aka Transit Study) of Iowa City’s transit system.

The City of Coralville and the University of Iowa (CAMBUS), the partner transit agencies within the metro area, are also included in the study.
