LINCOLN — The Nebraska Department of Transportation continues to study the feasibility of delivering intercity bus service from Kearney to Grand Island to Hastings.
The NDOT’s project team will present concepts for the proposed transit routes during a second round of public open house meetings, including one planned noon to 3 p.m. Dec. 4 at the UNK Alumni House, 2222 Ninth Ave. in Kearney. Presentations are planned at 12:15 p.m. and 2 p.m.
Other meetings are planned in Hastings noon to 5 p.m. Dec. 5 at the Adams County Fairgrounds, with presentations at 12:15 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.; and in Grand Island noon-5 p.m. Dec. 6 at Grand Island City Hall, with presentations at 12:15 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
Nebraska residents are encouraged to attend any of the open house meetings. The NDOT said in a press release that area residents who are unable to attend the meetings are invited to join via Facebook Live each of the advertised days on the Nebraska Transit Facebook page.
The proposed bus service is part of Nebraska’s Mobility Management program, which seeks to coordinate and improve transportation options for south-central Nebraskans. Anticipated completion of the study is spring 2020.
