Tim Simon, ATG transit specialist, and the ATG planning group are developing a 10-year transit development plan for Northwest Arkansas (NWA). Tim visited the region last week to discuss the plan with the region’s city officials and transit providers, including Ozark Regional Transit Officials.”The focus is on fixing the core, fixed-route, urban transit system on a regional and local basis. So, looking at a regional level, but making detailed recommendations for each community,” Tim said. The plan will be unique to NWA and will revolve around the region’s specific needs. In order to understand those needs, the public engagement effort will be ramping up this spring when the planning team will be attending and hosting events throughout the NWA area.
