HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Changes are coming to Harrisonburg's public transportation system.
For the past several months, the city's Department of Transportation has been studying ways to improve its bus system. The study recommended making routes, schedules and performance better for the nearly 3 million passengers each year.
On Thursday afternoon, people in the city will be able to share their thoughts and learn more about the changes at an informational session being held at 1 p.m. on Thursday at the public transportation administrative building on East Washington Street.
One of the major changes to the city's bus system is a new bus route; something Transit Superintendent Avery Daugherty said will make a big difference, "Basically what this will do is split an existing city route in half. It'll provide extra service to Rockingham Memorial Hospital, as well as the Valley Mall corridor and James Madison University. It's something that people can transfer to and just provide overall better coverage of our city limits."
If you can't make it to the meeting, you can still leave your feedback online at Be Heard Harrisonburg.
