Public transit in Sheridan could expand

Posted:

An expanded public transportation system could come soon to Sheridan.

Currently the Sheridan Senior Center operates the mini-bus system, which provides a door-to-door service.

But senior center officials and a local initiative group are looking into developing a more structured public transit system. A consulting firm spent most of this year studying the mini-bus and gathering input from the public and has presented its findings in public meetings over the last two days.

One recommendation involves a fixed route between the north and south sides of the city.

"The consultant stated that we have a really linear community and it would actually lend itself quite well to a fixed route system," said Sheridan Senior Center executive director Carmen Rideout.

The consultants also suggested creating a transit authority. Rideout says local groups will explore how feasible these options are over the course of next year.
