Passenger Transportation Study – Phase 1
Passenger Transportation Study
The Passenger Transportation Study (PTS) serves as a long-term strategy for enhancing passenger transportation services in Apache, Coconino, and Navajo Counties. The study includes a regional transit vision, analysis of current/future passenger transportation needs, and recommendations to structure, fund, and manage expansions/additions to the transportation network. The PTS offers strategies for local implementation while promoting regional connections and innovations amongst partners. Phase 1 of this study was completed in October 2018, with the final document delivered in December 2018.
The PTS Advisory Committee, which was made up of representatives from the community, local jurisdictions and non-profit service provides, met three times to provide input into the plan. The Advisory Committee’s role was to guide the visioning and strategy development processes and provide feedback on the final plan recommendations. For more information about the Advisory Committee and their Kick-Off meeting, see the Passenger Transportation Study Newsletter – Issue #1 below.
The consultants for the project, KFH Group and Southwest Planning and Marketing, along with NACOG staff, held a series of five public meetings to gather input on the Passenger Transportation Study in June 2018. Called “Meetings on a Bus”, this community outreach consists of parking a bus in a busy parking lot and inviting people to talk about transit needs in the region. The public could tour the buses, ask questions and fill out a survey. At the end of the day the consultants conducted a 1.5 hour focus group on each bus. The “Meetings on a Bus” were held in Show Low, Tuba City, Window Rock, Winslow and Page.
Technical Memorandums (Tech Memos)
KFH Group conducted detailed, technical analyses as part of the PTS and provided the information to NACOG in the form of Technical Memorandums, or Tech Memos. The Tech Memos are valuable appendices to the final plan and are available below.
