(Montrose, CO 2/20/13) – All Points Transit would like your help with adjusting the Montrose Public Bus Routes. The changes will be put in place later this year when the Transfer Station moves from North 2nd and Cascade to South 2nd between Uncompahgre and Cascade in Downtown Montrose. APT is sending surveys out to homes in neighborhoods identified as target areas for the route changes.
“We have gotten feedback over the course of the last two years and have some ideas as to where the service is needed in Montrose,” said Terri Wilcox, Executive Director of All Points Transit, “but we want to give the community one more opportunity to have their voices heard before making a final decision. We wish we could reach all of our targeted neighborhoods, but with a limited budget, we will have to prioritize based on need and mileage.”
Most of the surveys are going to neighborhoods on the east side of town; around 6700 Rd. between Sunnyside and Ogden Rd, including American Village and Ravens Crest. The organization is also targeting people off of 6530, north of the San Juan Bypass, and those east of Townsend between Oak Grove and Odelle roads. Participate by taking the survey online. The survey can be found online at:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MontroseBusRoutes. All Points Transit is collecting feedback until Friday, March 8th.
APT has scheduled two community forums to review the suggested changes and receive public input. The first one will be held on Wednesday, March 13th from 5:30 until 7 pm. The second one will be on Thursday, March 14th from 11:30 am to 1 pm. Both sessions will take place in the Sneffels Conference Room at the Region 10 Enterprise Center at 300 N. Cascade in Montrose.
“The forum is an opportunity for community members, along with representatives from partner organizations such as Health and Human Services, the City and County of Montrose and local businesses, to get involved in the process,” said Wilcox. “We are hoping for a good turnout!”
