SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The Lane Transit District is seeking public input on the bus system in an effort to take a closer look at how it can improve service.

Leaders with LTD announced "Transit Tomorrow" to the City Club of Springfield Thursday. They want to take a comprehensive look at the bus system to find out what works and what doesn't.

They're looking at everything from where the buses run to how they come in and out of neighborhoods. The feedback they get could lead to a complete overhaul of the bus system.

“One thing that we've definitely heard from people is that it's easy to get into downtown Springfield and downtown Eugene by bus but it's tough to get across the neighborhoods,” Edward McGlone of LTD said. “So we're going to want to talk to folks a lot about what does serving neighborhoods better look like.”

The project kicks off Tuesday morning with an invitation-only stakeholder forum at the at the University of Oregon. LTD’s Board of Directors plan to make decisions based on the feedback next spring. You can also take a survey online by clicking here.
