Washington State University Vancouver will host an open house March 10, 2016 to discuss proposed changes to C-TRAN service. The meeting will take place at the Firstenburg Student Commons. The public is invited to drop in anytime between 11am and 1pm to have C-TRAN staff answer questions.
C-TRAN, the regional public transportation provider for portions of Clark County, has identified 11 routes for possible changes beginning in September, including Route 19 serving WSU Vancouver. The proposed change for Route 19 includes Sunday service to the campus.
Sponsored by WSU Vancouver’s new Transportation Committee, the event is part of a series of open forums inviting public comment. You may also email comments to C-TRAN at [email protected] Public feedback will be used to finalize the proposed service changes, which will go before the C-TRAN board at a public hearing in April.
The proposed concepts would retain most of C-TRAN’s routing but would service some locations differently. The goal is to match agency resources with existing demand while reaching new areas. In addition to the changes to existing routes, C-TRAN has drawn up four potential new routes and is considering dropping two others. C-TRAN is preparing for the opening of The Vine, a bus rapid transit system now under construction and scheduled for completion in late 2016.
