San Luis Valley Transit Plan seeks public input

SALIDA — In 2021, the Chaffee Shuttle was awarded funding from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to conduct a transit planning study for the San Luis Valley.

This study will identify existing transit challenges and opportunities in the Region, seek input from community members and stakeholders about how mobility could be improved, and develop a plan to meet the needs of community members, employers, and employees in the San Luis Valley.

The Chaffee Shuttle is now seeking community input on locations with the greatest need for transit, existing challenges in reaching essential and recreational destinations, and any other transit-related issues and opportunities in the San Luis Valley. It is vital to gather as much community feedback and local knowledge as possible to ensure proposed strategies and recommendations accurately reflect the values and needs of those that live, work, visit, and recreate in the Region.

Community members can provide feedback, learn more about the project, and subscribe to be a part of the project email list at Input can also be provided on the project website through Oct. 22.
