October 2, 2015 – The Midland Area Transportation Study (MATS) will host an open house for residents, businesses, and other stakeholders to provide input regarding the region’s long-range transportation plan, which includes public transportation providers such as Dial-A-Ride.
With the help of the community, MATS would like to:
• determine a long-term vision with respect to the region’s transportation systems;• identify and discuss goals and objectives of the Long Range Transportation Plan;
• identify and discuss policies, strategies, and projects for the future; and• collaborate on all transportation modes.
The open house will be held Wednesday, October 14 from 5-8 p.m. in Council Chambers at Midland City Hall, 333 W. Ellsworth Street, Midland, Michigan.
MATS is part of the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO), a collaborative group of all the governmental agencies and transits that fall within an urbanized area. The MPO is charged with developing short- and long-range plans for all future transportation and transit needs in the area. These plans are required by the MPO in order for the urbanized area to receive federal funds for both highways and transit.
