Master Transit Plan

ABOUT THE STUDY

As the Pocatello region evolves, so do its transit needs.

The Bannock Transportation Planning Organization (BTPO), in partnership with Pocatello Regional Transit (PRT), is developing a Transit Master Plan for the BTOP planning area.  The purpose of the study is to identify what is and is not working well today, where service is and is not needed most, and ultimately, how PRT can better serve the Pocatello region both today and in the future.  The Transit Master Plan will provide a planning, policy, financial, and operational framework for developing and delivering transit service, projects, and programs through 2040.

Through this study, BTPO and PRT hope to:

  • Better understand how we can best serve our existing and potential customers, and define transit’s role in regional mobility and economic development.
  • Increase ridership through improved design and operation of public transit in Pocatello.
  • Establish a framework for making decisions about existing and future transit service.

To accomplish this, BTPO and PRT will be soliciting input from the public throughout each step of the study process to ensure the recommended service changes meet the needs of the community.

GET INVOLVED

The website will be continually updated as the study progresses, with project data and information available to the community. From this site, you will be able to:

  • Review study-related data

Opportunities for public involvement will occur throughout the project, with both in-person events and ongoing engagement online. There are a variety of community events planned for the Transit Master Plan, including pop-up events and open house meetings.  The first in-person engagement opportunities will occur in August 2017. We will post information here as events are finalized.
