Just Released!!! Transportation Plan Update Draft Final (by Transit Plus)



















The Transportation Plan Update Draft Final was just released by Transit Plus.  It is available on our KMPO website under "News & Notices" on the main page at the following link:  http://www.kmpo.net/

This study updates the Kootenai Metropolitan Area Public Transportation Feasibility Plan, adopted in 2005. The focus of the original study was on the development of public transportation services. This included short and long-term service options for the community based on conditions at the time and anticipated growth.

Citylink public transit service was initiated in 2005 and ridership quickly grew to over 500,000 annual trips. Citylink is operated by the Coeur d’Alene Tribe and funded primarily by Tribal funds and Federal Transit Administration urbanized area funds. Kootenai County serves as the designated recipient for the FTA funds.

While the focus of the 2005 plan was the feasibility and initial development of transit service, this update identifies the progress made since the last report and emphasizes the institutional and financial structure necessary to sustain the system and provide for a strong and responsive decision-making process.
