RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - The buses are becoming outdated and population has grown so to the Rapid City Transit system is asking for the public’s input.

Some suggestions to update the system include: longer hours and night time service. The city is also looking at expanding routes.

“Where are demographic were for the city was different and so it was just time to updated but the growth of the city is obviously a huge catalyst as well as to look for the expansion of services. We get a lot of comments from people that you know maybe don’t work the traditional eight to five who can’t get home at night or Sunday services for church or more grocery opportunities and shopping opportunities,” says Kelly Brennan, long range planner.

The public can comment on the expansion of the transit system through Jan. 21 here.
