[On Tuesday], Santa Barbara MTD announced the launch of MTD Moves Ahead, a community process to create a Short Range Transit Plan that will guide bus service development, infrastructure investment, and capital needs for MTD’s bus system over the next five years.
New residential developments, changes to commutes, technology, and the economy all mean a big opportunity to rethink transit on Santa Barbara County’s South Coast.
To prioritize our community’s needs and desires for bus service, MTD is seeking broad community input from everyone—people who ride the bus and those who don’t, employees, employers, students, people with disabilities, seniors, and civic leaders. If you live or work here, MTD wants to hear from you!
The process starts now, with a virtual listening session scheduled for Wednesday, October 20, 2021 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., where attendees will be asked to weigh in on what is most important to them in a bus system. Interested individuals can register here for the listening session. Spanish/English interpretation will be provided.
MTD looks forward to hearing from the public as they share their experiences with our local bus system, their priorities for our service, and what they would like to see in the future.
