JONESBOROUGH, TN (WJHL) – The public transit providers of the region gathered on Monday to discuss the future of public transportation in the Tri-Cities and so far, no final decision has been made.
The TDOT Multimodal Division hosted a Tri-Cities Regional Transit Summit that included members from the area’s public transit providers, metropolitan planning organizations and elected officials from around the region.
They are trying to come up with a long-term solution for public transportation after June 30.
We’ve told you NET Trans will continue public transportation in urbanized areas through that date.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation is implementing a new state program to help fund public transit service in urbanized areas that are not currently served by a core urban fixed route service.
