2023 Cheyenne Transit Development Plan

Summary of Project

The Cheyenne Metropolitan Planning Organization and the City of Cheyenne’s Transit Program (CTP) are currently underway on an important project called the 2023 Transit Development Plan (TDP). 

This plan is focused on how to improve CTP’s transit services within Cheyenne, including fixed route, microtransit, and ADA paratransit services. This analysis will lead to recommendations for program and service design improvements for overall system efficiency and operational effectiveness. 

The final plan will reflect community needs and priorities, recognize funding limitations and identify potential new funding sources, emphasize efficient use of available resources, and incorporate new concepts for transit service delivery.

Project Goals

Engage the entire community, including underrepresented populations, in a renewed vision for CTP that creates new energy and enthusiasm around public transportation

Deliver near-term, short-term, and long-term recommendations with an eye towards practical, flexible, and implementable solutions

Identify what the greatest transportation needs are in the community and how they are distributed, in order to develop ways for CTP to meet them

Create a service plan that protects current ridership while identifying opportunities to attract new riders and improves the overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness of CTP

Build upon CTP’s existing successes, including with microtransit service

Detail infrastructure and capital needs
