MTD Taking to Streets to Gather Public Input

Staff will be posted at bus stops to get feedback about proposed route and schedule changes

In an effort to garner public input directly from those getting on or off buses, Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District representatives will be posted at various bus stops to hear feedback about proposed route and schedule changes.

Staff will be at the following locations:

» Downtown Transit Center: 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 14

» SBCC: 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 14

» UCSB North Hall: 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 20

» State & La Cumbre (both sides of State Street): 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 21

» Hollister & Nectarine: 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday, April 22, and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 27

“We’ve chosen a variety of high-traffic locations, during the busiest travel times, to talk with as many MTD riders as possible,” said David Damiano, manager of transit development and community relations. “As we prepare for these new changes to take effect on Aug. 23, we’d like to hear from anyone who may be affected by these proposed changes.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
