Public hearing on west-side Wichita transit changes set for Thursday

Wichita Transit officials will hold a public hearing Thursday on west-side transit improvements.

The hearing is set for 4:30 p.m. in Conference Room B, Building 200, at the transit office, 777 E. Waterman.

Transit officials are proposing the elimination of the west-side connector route, replacing it with an extended West Maple route and a West Central route. In addition, transit will implement a neighborhood feeder service in specific areas on Wichita’s west side. The proposed changes will become effective April 12.
