Residents asked to take survey for the city Transit Development Plan
City staff are working with representatives from Capital Metro and a consultant, URS, for a transit development plan to outline future commuter and transit opportunities for Pflugerville residents. Residents are asked to take a transit survey to provide feedback for the project.
"The goal of the survey is to get a feel for resident's perspective on transit in the community," Assistant City Manager Trey Fletcher said. "Through the survey and public meetings, we will discuss various transit options for Pflugerville, such as a park-and-ride, and return to Council with a plan for the future."
In the 2015 Citizen Survey, residents listed traffic and growth as the two largest resident concerns. The Transit Development Plan will provide some solutions to ease congestion and offer mobility alternatives. Having the transit plan will enable the city to coordinate transit planning efforts for the city and identify opportunities for collaboration with Capital Metro as well as adjacent communities.
The plan will identify future transit needs in Pflugerville, analyze service options and financing, provide recommendations for transit services and complement the future high-capacity services that are part of the Cap Metro Project Connect North Corridor Study.
Take a survey online to give feedback on transit by visitingPftransitplan.org. An open house and meeting will take place on February 22 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the library to further discuss the project.
