Description

Transportation planners from the SEDA-COG and Williamsport Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) areas will be holding three listening sessions this fall to hear from the public about transit and transportation service needs and issues.
 
These sessions are an opportunity for residents who do not drive or who rely on transportation services to speak directly with planners about service gaps, scheduling issues, delays, reliability, affordability issues and other concerns. When one or more of these issues gets in the way of reaching jobs, medical appointments, food stores, pharmacies and other services, our region falls short.
 
Understanding who is affected—whether seniors, minorities, low-income individuals, people with disabilities, individuals with limited English language skills or even the general public—will help quantify needs and prioritize areas of improvement.
 
Three sessions have been scheduled to hear from residents in Clinton, Columbia, Juniata, Lycoming, Mifflin, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder and Union counties.
 
Each three-hour session is designed for people to drop in and stay as long as they prefer to share their needs and concerns about transportation services. Each facility is accessible and has convenient parking. Caregivers, advocates and service agencies are also welcome to attend.
 
Those not able to attend a listening session in person are encouraged to participate in an online survey at
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KPQ58NR by October 29, 2018.
