Valley Regional Transit is looking for feedback on Meridian transportation

Share:

Valley Regional Transit is looking to add more public transportation options in Meridian and is asking the community for feedback.

Public transportation in Meridian is currently limited to the Harvest Route, a Monday through Friday bus route for seniors, veterans, and persons with disabilities. And while the city plans to launch its first dedicated bus route called 30 Pine, and add two electric buses, more transportation modes for the area are in the works.

Over the next several months, VRT is discussing and focusing on four project areas–vanpool, on-demand transit to help bring more residents to work and appointments, fixed-route services such as adding more route options to popular destinations like Boise, and expanding to add more specialized transportation services such as the Harvest Transit.

Adding even a couple of these projects to Meridian would improve access to all Treasure Valley areas, help fund affordable and sustainable transit, and add travel options in Meridian.

“Meridian residents and commuters are feeling the pains of rapid growth, and the traffic and congestion that it creates,” the VRT website said.
