All Points Transit is seeking input from residents throughout their four-county service area, which includes communities in Montrose, Delta, San Miguel and Ouray counties. The feedback received will be used to guide an upcoming strategic operating plan, slated to be completed this summer.
All Points Transit is working with Felsburg, Holt and Ullevig (FHU), a consulting group that specializes in transit planning, to complete the project. It is not the first time FHU has helped with transit planning on the Western Slope. In 2015, the firm completed a "Transit Implementation Plan" for Region 10. The group also recently worked with Grand Valley Transit in Mesa County.
"One of our first steps in the planning is to engage the communities we service in a robust public input process," says Sarah Curtis, executive director of All Points Transit. "As a part of that process, we have an online survey out now. We will also be out on the buses, at the recreation centers, grocery stores, senior centers and any community event that will have us to gather feedback from citizens."
The project is made possible through grant funding from the Colorado Department of Transportation. The survey will be available online through the end of February. In partnership with the City of Montrose, residents will receive a paper copy of the survey in their utility bill. All Points Transit is a private 501c3 nonprofit organization.
