CAMBUS invites community to participate in open houses Nov. 12 – 14, 2019
November 1, 2019
The University of Iowa, the City of Coralville, and the City of Iowa City will be hosting public open house events Tuesday, November 12 – Thursday, November 14. CAMBUS will host their open house at the Iowa Memorial Union on Tuesday, November 12 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. All members of the community, both riders and non-riders, are encouraged to attend the open houses that are part of the Iowa City Area Transit Study (ICATS). Community members can also participate by completing a “Design Your Own Transit System” survey.
Each transit provider will host an open house. While attending, community members can learn more about the transit study and provide input on the transit system. Community members can attend the meeting that best fits their schedule regardless of which services they use.

The open houses are the second opportunity community members have had to provide input. In mid-September, on-board surveys were administered to riders. Public input and data collected from transit providers will be used by the consulting group Nelson/Nygaard to develop improvement options. These options will be presented to the community for another round of feedback in early 2020.
Design Your Own Transit System
Those interested can also "Design Your Own Transit System" by taking a short online survey, where you can weigh in on what aspects of a transit system are most important to you. The survey will remain open through Thanksgiving weekend (December 1).
More information about the study is available at transportation.uiowa.edu/transit-study-2019-2020.
