Forum set for Jan. 28 to discuss public transit

Ponca City Now - January 22, 2020 2:21 pm

United Community Action Program, lnc. /Cimarron Public Transit will hold community forums in January
related to public transportation for Creek, Kay, Osage, Pawnee, and Washington counties.

Staff requests input from riders, local businesses, municipalities, social service agencies, tribes, private providers,
health facilities, elected officials, and the general public to assist in preparing for the future.

The advantage of receiving open communication helps the program to better match service with needs.

“Priorities will focus on maintaining the highest level of service in alignment with available resources to meet the greatest needs,” according to Laura Corff, transit director.

Cimarron Transit seeks comments from citizens regarding transportation needs and issues for consideration in updating the agency’s transportation plan. The transportation plan will be incorporated into the annual application for funding under Section 5311 formula grants for Rural Areas, which is due to the Transit Program Division of ODOT in March.

The meeting for Ponca City is scheduled for Jan. 28, 2020, at City Hall, 516 East Grand Avenue, in the Barnes Room, from 11 a.m. to noon.

Those interested in attending may request free transportation to/from the meeting. A limited number
of free rides will be available to first callers who schedule 72 hours in advance.

Those unable to attend a meeting can submit responses by email to [email protected], by fax to (918) 762-3041, Ext. 181 or by mail to 501 Sixth Street, Pawnee, OK 74058.

For questions about accessibility or to request accommodations, please contact Corff at 918-762-3041 Ext. 181 or [email protected]
