ECAT Holding Workshops On Future Transit Needs

May 31, 2016

Escambia County, in coordination with Escambia County Area Transit (ECAT), has launched a major update to the County’s 10-year Transit Development Plan (TDP), which is named the Connections 2026: Moving Escambia Forward. The TDP update will serve as a guide for the future of public transportation in Escambia County from 2017–2026, representing Escambia County’s vision to promote transit growth and improvement over the next decade.

Public participation is an important part of the ECAT TDP planning process. The public is encouraged to attend one of two public workshops to discuss the findings from the previous Connections 2026 TDP workshops and online surveys, and to provide input on the draft 10-year TDP transit needs plan. Staff and consultants will be available at these workshops to provide information, answer questions, and take comments.
