The COMET TRANSIT SYSTEM TO Hold Community Listening Sessions

The COMET is planning a series of public listening sessions throughout the Midlands to solicit input on future plans and recommendations for transit system improvement. Participants are asked to come and share their comments, concerns and their vision for the future of transit in the Midlands. Business owners and employees, residents, church representatives, riders, non-riders and visitors are encouraged to attend.  The goal is to receive feedback on how to make The COMET more efficient and convenient for everyone.

The series of listening sessions will kick off with meetings in the Downtown and Edgewood/Waverley service areas. The public is invited to attend and participate in one of the following two meetings:
