Public Input Sought for Long-Term Owensboro Transit Plan

The long-term transit needs in Owensboro will be the subject of a final report issued next week at City Hall.

The Corradino Group will present its final report on the study which makes proposals to improve Owensboro’s transit options. The Messenger-Inquirer reports a public hearing will be held Thursday, August 1, where Owensboro residents can comment on the study’s findings.

Owensboro transit manager Michael Hughes has said the study will recommend that the city’s transit system expand to eight routes from six, with all routes taking no longer than half-an-hour to complete. The study is also expected to call for the city’s bus system to expand its coverage area and include new transfer points that would allow riders to reach their destinations more efficiently.

The public hearing on the transit plan is August 1 at 11 a.m. in Owensboro’s City Hall.
