Umpqua Transit Master Plan

What is this project? 

We’re excited to start our Transit Master Plan (TMP) work this year. This plan will map out the ways that we can create a transit system for everyone, improve service, and connect people to the places they need to go. The plan will:

  • Assess the existing transit services and facilities.
  • Understand the bicycle and pedestrian network connections.
  • Look for ways to pay for future improvements and leverage existing state and federal funding.

We will want to hear from you throughout the project, but especially during key decision-points. We’ll post more information on this site as we move forward.

Why did this project take place? 

As our community grows and public needs change, we need to adjust the transportation systems and services. This project was an opportunity to gather public input regarding Public Transportation Services in Douglas County.  This plan will chart our future development so that we can be deliberate in our growth and ensure we meet the community’s needs effectively and cost-efficiently. In addition, Umpqua Public Transportation District needs a plan for future improvements to receive state transit funding dollars and leverage other funding sources.
