Seeking Your Feedback: The T Master Plan

Oakhurst residents; Councilwoman Ann Zadeh is requesting your participation regarding the future of public transportation in Tarrant County. See below for details:

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) will be conducting six public meetings in April to solicit feedback from the public about how transit could best serve Tarrant County in the near-term and future.

The meetings will serve to inform The T's Transit Master Plan that currently is underway. The plan will include a review of current service, identify opportunities to expand transit service to meet the growing needs of the region, and determine what resources could be allocated to pursue those opportunities.

The meetings will be open house-style events, with several interactive activities featuring maps where attendees can show how they would improve service, as well as tradeoff exercises where participants can vote for their priority transit issues. Staff will give a brief presentation during each open house to share the progress of The T Master Plan. Attendees will be able to talk one-on-one with T staff, or participate in a question and answer session after the presentation.

Meetings are scheduled as follows:
