HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — As the City of Huntsville grows, Huntsville Transit is exploring ways it can improve operations while also evaluating an expansion of its service area.

To that end, a series of community outreach meetings will be held next month 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,” said Quisha Bryant, Director of Huntsville’s Parking and Public Transportation Department.  “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.”

Huntsville Transit will hold five meetings over two days. The meeting schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, Sept. 13

10 a.m. to noon – Huntsville Madison Co. Senior Center

1-3 p.m. – Huntsville Transit Center

4-6 p.m. – Dr. Richard Showers, Sr. Recreation Center

Wednesday, Sept. 14

7-10 a.m. – Huntsville Transit Center

4-6 p.m. – Sandra Moon Community Complex

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 and 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.
