Meetings on public transit scheduled

– The Northeastern Indiana Regional Coordinating Council has scheduled two public information sessions on the recently updated Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan for Allen County.

The sessions will include a presentation on the development and the contents of the proposed plan, as well as time for questions and comments. The draft plan is currently available at or at the NIRCC office, 200 E. Berry St., Suite 230, for public review.

The plan identifies the available transportation services, the transportation needs of the targeted populations, and the gaps in transportation services.

It also develops and prioritizes strategies to address the gaps.

Projects selected for funding under these programs must be supported by the plan and the plan must be “developed through a process that includes representatives of public, private and nonprofit transportation and human services providers and participation by the public.”

The one-hour sessions are scheduled for 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Omni Room (Garden Level, Room 045) at Citizens Square, 200 E. Berry St. For more information on the sessions or the plan, contact Matt Vondran at 449-7903 or
