Hey Huntsvillians: the city needs your help evaluating its public transit system. The City of Huntsville announced Tuesday that a series of public meetings will be held and a public survey available for residents to give feedback on the city’s public transportation.

Here is how you can help the city improve its public transit system:

A series of community outreach meetings will be held in September to hear comments from Huntsville Transit users or anyone who has an opinion about operations. The city will use comments to help shape a strategic plan designed to guide future service improvements.

“Receiving public input is such a critical part of what we do because it not only guides what we do now, but it also shapes our future. We hope to receive insight on not only our challenges, but also our successes. We want Huntsville Transit to be a resource valued by all residents, so we take their feedback seriously.”

Quisha Bryant, director of Huntsville’s Parking and Public Transportation Department

Those who can’t attend the meetings can visit GoHuntsvilleTransit.com and complete an online survey.

Representatives from Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates Inc. will also be at the community meetings. The firm is working with the City to update its Transit Improvement Plan. In addition to gathering public input, the firm will look at 2020 census data as well as demographic development changes since 2019.

Preliminary results will be presented to the City Council later this year, while a final report will be finalized in early 2023.
