The public is invited to attend one of five public meetings to learn about the service enhancements being proposed for 2014 by the Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority (DART).
The public meetings are designed to provide riders with the opportunity to view and provide feedback on DART’s proposed service changes. The proposed service changes include additional frequency on Local Routes 3, 6, 8, 16 and 17; additional trips on Express Routes 92, 93 and 98; and a restructuring of Flex Route 73 which services Urbandale and Windsor Heights. The changes would take effect in August 2014 as part of the DART Forward 2035 Transit Service Plan, a plan for expanding and improving service throughout Greater Des Moines.
Each session will include a presentation on the service recommendations taking effect this year. The presentation will be followed by a group comment session, and time to talk with staff members individually.
