Deadline for ShasCo survey on future transpo options extended
SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. — The Shasta Regional Transportation Agency is extending the close date for an online community questionnaire seeking input on how the community want to travel in 20 years.
The Shasta Regional Transportation Agency is extending the 2040 Long Range Transit Plan community questionnaire’s deadline through to August 12th which allows community members to share their thoughts on how the Shasta region should plan for future travel options.
LEADING THE SCNS HEADLINES:
More than 140 community members have participated, and with fascinating feedback. While community members still want bus service for longer trips, more than 40% of respondents are interested in implementing electric bikes and scooters in their city. More than 60% expressed interest in trying on-demand transit, and around 67% percent of respondents would try taking a neighborhood electric shuttle if it was available.
“At this point we have seen some great results from this crowdsourcing effort so we want to extend the deadline an additional week to allow more opportunity for community members to participate,” says Daniel Wayne, Senior Transportation Planner with the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency. “Knowing that we are creating a Long-Range Transit Plan that addresses the community’s needs will support the Shasta region’s growing transportation networks and uphold our quality of life.”
The 2040 Long-Range Transit Plan will be the blueprint for a sustainable, safe, innovative, integrated and efficient public transportation system. It will identify and help prioritize future transportation projects in order meet the future needs of residents in the Shasta Region.
The Shasta Regional Transportation Agency invites community members from throughout the Shasta Region to learn about the 2040 Long-Range Transit Plan and provide their feedback at www.2040LongRangeTransitPlan.com.
