Consultant team hosts the first in a series of public meetings as part of transit study
Comprehensive, independent study evaluates need, costs, public support and range of options
The City of Cedar Park has partnered with a consultant team from Nelson Nygaard to conduct the first steps in a comprehensive transit study. The primary goals of the study are to evaluate the need and associated costs, determine public support and evaluate a range of options to meet different transportation needs over the next five years. This is an independent study and is not in conjunction with any specific transportation providers.
The consultant team will:
- Study local and regional travel patterns and demographics
- Review existing public and private transit options and emerging technologies
- Review transit options that have been tested and implemented in cities similar to Cedar Park and
- Detail the costs and benefits of each option.
Community engagement is a vital component of the study. Cedar Park residents and stakeholders will have multiple opportunities to participate in the 12-month study by providing in-person and online feedback via scheduled community meetings and online surveys. A website specific to the study has been created and information and the first online survey can be found at www.cedarparktransitstudy.com. The survey will remain open January 14 through February 4, 2019.
The first public meeting will be held Wednesday, January 16, 2019 from 6 to 8:00 p.m. at the Cedar Park Recreation Center, Community Rooms, 1435 Main Street, Cedar Park, Texas 78613. Presentations begin at 6:15 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
The next public meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at the Cedar Park Recreation Center, Community Rooms from 6 to 8:00 p.m.
Findings and community feedback will be presented to City Council at the end of the study for further evaluation and discussion later this year.
