Results from a study of public transportation needs in Sheridan County will be reviewed during two public meetings next week.
A public presentation is set for 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon, Nov. 21, at the Sheridan Senior Center on Smith Street. A presentation to the Public Transportation Initiative of Sheridan County, the group that prompted the study, will begin at 10 Friday morning, Nov. 22, in the Downtown Sheridan Association offices on North Scott Street.
Senior Center Director Carmen Rideout said the transportation initiative group began meeting several years ago when some of its members saw a need for public transportation in Sheridan. Based on the group's efforts, she said the Senior Center applied to the Wyoming Department of Transportation for a study. The study got underway in February, conducted by LSC Transportation Consultants Inc. of Colorado Springs.
The Senior Center became involved because it operates the mini-bus transportation system seven days a week that serves residents of Sheridan, Dayton, Story, Banner and Big Horn.
