Grand Valley Transit Strategic Planning Effort Begins


Project Team Seeks Public Input to Inform Community Transit Vision

As Mesa County grows and changes, Grand Valley Transit wants to make sure that our bus system is
reflective of the values, needs, and vision of our residents, employees, students, and visitors. To help achieve this, Mesa County recently initiated the process to develop a Strategic Plan for Grand Valley Transit to help guide the agency’s operations and investments over the next 10 years.

Throughout the development of Grand Valley Transit’s Strategic Plan, there will be opportunities for the community to identify issues and opportunities and to help identify the most appropriate strategic path that will meet community-supported vision and goals. The project began in April 2017 and is planned for completion by February 2018. During this time, the project team will inventory and analyze the existing transit system conditions, solicit input from the public, create a strategic vision and associated goals, and objectives based on community input, develop system route scenarios, and identify action steps to implement the Strategic Plan over time.

Tell us what you think about Grand Valley Transit and the future of transit in Mesa County.

The first public outreach effort will be held on June 22nd at each of the Transfer Facilities from 8 am to 4 pm and on June 23rd on Main Street in Grand Junction from 9am-12pm. The project team will share information about Grand Valley Transit and provide opportunities for the public to share ideas about the current and future transit system. We are looking to hear from both current riders and those that aren’t familiar with Grand Valley Transit. Please stop by to give us your ideas and input about our transit system and let us know what you value as a community member!

Can’t attend in person? Visit our website.

To further public participation in the process, a project website has been developed that provides project updates, an interactive public commenting map, and documents and plans for public review. Visit www.GVTstrategicplan.com to stay involved and tell us what you think!
