Fixed-route bus system open house planned for March 21
The City of Georgetown is hosting an open house meeting to share with the public progress on delivering the City’s new fixed-route bus system.
The meeting will be held 4-7 p.m. on March 21 at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St.
At the open house meeting, attendees will be able to learn about the Transit Development Plan that was adopted by City Council in September 2016 and the process to develop the fixed-route bus system. City staff will be on hand to discuss the process as well as various aspects of the TDP, including policies that will guide bus fares, discounted fares, service hours and ridership as well as answer attendees’ questions.
Bus service is scheduled to begin in August. City staff has been working with their partners at Capital Metro, Capital Area Rural Transportation System, the Georgetown Health Foundation, The Caring Place and Faith in Action Georgetown to refine service planning recommendations to present to City Council. The council is expected to consider adoption of the policies during its regularly scheduled March 28 meeting.
