Staff Report

Principal A.T. Stoddard of LSC Transportation Consultants, Inc of Colorado Springs attended Thursday evening’s Transportation Board meeting in Council Chambers to update the board on the progress of the Comprehensive Transit Study. Atomic City Transit (ACT) contracted with LSC to prepare the Comprehensive Transit Study and Five-Year Transit Service Plan in Los Alamos County.

Stoddard told Transportation Board members Thursday that things are moving along on schedule. The project administration and coordination phase of the project slated for March has been completed, April’s analysis of existing ACT services and a passenger survey are done and Thursday’s public meeting marked May’s public involvement phase. 

Los Alamos County is taking a proactive effort to respond to challenges of providing public transit service in an environment of dramatically increasing demand for services. This study is providing an evaluation of existing transit service and looking at underserved and unserved markets and will establish appropriate types of service based on demand for the next five years.
