TCAT examines potential of improving service to Lansing

Two public meetings scheduled for 6/7/18 and 6/13/17

TCAT is considering options to redesign service to both Lansing Town and Village residents and will hold two public sessions to gather suggestions from current and potential riders traveling in that part of its service area.

The meetings are as scheduled:

  • Noon to 1:30 p.m., Thurs., June 7, in Room G-22 in Cornell’s Plant Science Building, 236 Tower Road, Ithaca.
  • 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wed., June 13, at the Lansing Town Hall (board room), 29 Auburn Road, Lansing.

TCAT Service Development Manager Matt Yarrow will make introductory presentations at both meetings before opening them up for public discussion. Yarrow said he wants to hear riders’ observations about the current schedule and whether Lansing residents would use and benefit from more service.

At present, TCAT’s Lansing routes run at a.m. and p.m. peak times with Routes 36 and 37 offering five trips per day on weekdays, and Route 77 providing four trips per day on Saturdays.

“We are open to adding service in the middle of the day and potentially on weekends,” said Yarrow. “We are also open to changing where the routes travel so we can capture new riders, so feedback from Lansing riders is essential.”

Those planning to attend or those wishing to offer feedback via phone or email can contact Yarrow by phone at (607) 277-9388 ext. 520 or email him at my1@tcatmail.com
