2022 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 2022 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.

 

Developing the TDP will include:

An analysis of existing community conditions and demographics

Comprehensive public outreach plan with opportunities for input throughout the entire planning process

Evaluation of existing transit service and ridership

Inventory of capital equipment/infrastructure 

Transit needs and demand assessment

Development of service alternatives

Final recommended service plan with capital and financial plans

Project Objective

Develop a strategic plan for improved transit services to meet the needs of the community. 

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

Public Outreach and Engagement

Community outreach is an integral part of the 2022 CTP TDP planning process! 

Upcoming opportunities include:

CTP Onboard Survey

An onboard survey is the best means of engaging existing transit riders in the planning process. The bilingual survey questionnaire will ask riders about their trip origins and destinations, as well their level of satisfaction with existing CTP services. This survey effort will occur in early 2022.

Community Meeting
