Sunset Empire Transportation District Long-Range Comprehensive Transportation Plan

Executive Summary
Long Range Comprehensive Transportation Plan – Volume 1

Sunset Empire Transportation District Board of Commissioners is requesting public input and will be holding a public hearing during the next Board of Commissioners meeting on August 25, 2016, to receive public input on the adoption of the recently completed Long-Range Comprehensive Transportation Plan (LRCTP). Our consultants undertook preparation of the plan to better serve existing riders and broaden the District’s reach to a larger market of users. The LRCTP development has taken over a year and included extensive analysis and input from the local community, visitors, employers, employees and public transportation users. Plan recommendations include changes to route structures, schedules, passenger information, vehicles and performance tracking. “Receiving public input is an imperative component to the adoption of this plan and vital to the District’s service”, said Jeff Hazen, Executive Director for Sunset Empire Transportation. An overview of the LRCTP may be viewed on the District’s website at www.ridethebus.org. Printed copies of the LRCTP may be picked up at the Astoria Transit Center, 900 Marine Drive Astoria Oregon or at the Seaside Transportation Kiosk, 111 North Roosevelt Drive, Seaside Oregon. The August 25, 2016 Board Meeting will begin at 9:00 am and is held at the Astoria Transit Center, 900 Marine Drive, Astoria Oregon. Alternative formats of this report are available upon request. For more information please contact Jeff Hazen at 503-861-5399 or email at jeff@ridethebus.org.
