Topeka Metro Invites the Public to Envision the Future of Bus Service

TOPEKA, KANSAS (March 27, 2018) – Topeka Metro is conducting an online survey to gather public feedback about the direction of future transit plans. This brief interactive survey asks Topekans to share their priorities for services, routes, bus stop improvements, bus stop accessibility, and technology. The survey also includes an interactive map where current bus stops needing attention can be chosen.

Adam Weigel, Director of Service Planning for Topeka Metro, is enthusiastic about the new interactive survey. “Our goal is always to provide the best service for the people of Topeka. Knowing what changes are most important helps us plan strategic improvements for the next 5 to 10 years. With this new survey, Topekans can build their own vision of transit services and share it with us.  As we start our long-term planning process, updating the available transportation options to meet Topeka’s needs is important to the health and livelihood of the city.” The survey can be accessed at www.topekametro.org/survey.

This survey is part of Topeka Metro’s first ever Long-Range Transit Planning process for the City of Topeka.

In addition to the survey, an Interactive Public Workshop will be held April 10, 2018, at the Topeka/Shawnee County Library’s Marvin Auditorium, from 6-8 pm. Shuttle service is available to any attendee of the open house that needs a ride home.
