The Heart of Georgia Altamaha Regional Commission (HOGARC), in coordination with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), is requesting the public’s input during a planning meeting for the Regional Transit Development Plan (TDP) on October 24.
The TDP will help identify transit needs and opportunities and inform future on-demand (diala- ride) transit system investments across the 17 counties making up the Heart of Georgia Altamaha Region. A regional TDP will allow the HOGARC to pool resources and staff, create plans to consider regional needs and travel patterns, focus on local transportation issues and concerns, and identify implementable transit projects.
The Commission has asked that individuals contribute their concerns and thoughts, while also learning about the future on-demand transit system, during a virtual public meeting through the Zoom website from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on October 24. The group plans to discuss existing transit conditions and review the vision and goals for regional transit.
This meeting may be attended through the link found on the TDP website, https:// regionaltdp- gdot. hub.arcgis.com/pages/ hogarc. Through this link, Community members are also encouraged to review the project information and materials, while also providing input.
