OPEN INVITATION FOR UCAP/CIMARON PUBLIC TRANSIT COMMUNITY FORUM

United Community Action Program, lnc. /Cimarron Public Transit will hold community forums in January related to public transportation for Creek, Kay, Osage, Pawnee, and Washington counties. Staff requests input from riders, local businesses, municipalities, social service agencies, Tribes, private providers, health facilities, elected officials, and the general public to assist in preparing for the future.

The advantage of receiving open communication helps the program to better match service with needs. According to Laura Corff, transit director, “Priorities will focus on maintaining the highest level of service in alignment with available resources to meet the greatest needs.” Cimarron Transit seeks comments from citizens regarding transportation needs and issues for consideration in updating the agency’s transportation plan. The transportation plan will be incorporated into the annual application for funding under Section 5311 formula grants for Rural Areas, which is due to the Transit Program Division of ODOT in March.

The meeting for Ponca City is scheduled for January 28, 2020 at City Hall, 516 East Grand Avenue, in the Barnes Room, from 11:00 a.m. to noon.

Those interested in attending may request free transportation to/from the meeting. A limited number of free rides will be available to first callers who schedule 72-hours in advance. Those unable to attend a meeting can submit responses by email to [email protected], by fax to 918-762-3041 Ext.181 or by mail to 501 Sixth Street, Pawnee, OK 74058.
