Harrisonburg Department of Public Transportation is Seeking Input for a Multimodal Transit Center Feasibility Study: Survey Available Online and at Key Locations

(Harrisonburg, Va., June 16, 2021) – The Harrisonburg Department of Public Transportation (HDPT) is working on a project to develop an improved passenger transfer center for its community bus routes. The routes currently meet in a shopping center parking lot that offers few passenger or driver amenities. HDPT is interested in learning what features the public would like to see included as part of a new center.  In many communities these centers are multimodal, which means they offer a place where multiple modes of transportation come together. Connections can be made between modes, such as walking or riding a bicycle to catch a bus or taking a rideshare vehicle home. Additional modes/features could include: taxis; intercity buses; parking; car sharing; and others.  A public survey is being conducted as part of the planning process to help determine what types of amenities should be part of the project.

The survey is being conducted between June 15, 2021 and July 16, 2021.  The survey is available on-line in English and Spanish at the following links:
