Project Goal:

Initiate and complete the Norfolk flexroute service feasibility study.

Project Description:

Should the community support the decision to move forward with a flexible route service, a follow-up report with the next steps of work will be completed, including a bus stop assessment, environmental approval, marketing, public involvement, and plans for operations, capital, staffing, marketing, and assist in implementation of service roll out.

Previous strategies identified for the Norfolk Public Transportation will be revisited and updated, as needed to reflect today’s community vision for transit. A Technical Committee will be developed and will assist in developing realistic goals and objectives for transit in Norfolk, for both the short-term and long-term. The project team will complete site visits at the two existing agencies in Norfolk – the Ponca Express and the Norfolk Public Transportation.

The local team will review and discuss project needs, gaps, and strategies for enhanced public transportation within the city of Norfolk. Different types of service will be reviewed, and the Technical Committee will ultimately decide the best transit service for Norfolk. The local project team will conduct multiple stakeholder interviews to ensure input from the community, residents, visitors, elected officials, etc. is included in the analysis.
