Started: April, 2020 End Date: March, 2021 Project ID #4W8342 Status: Ongoing

Objective

Abstract

Through this project, WTI will conduct a transit study in Twin Falls, a county in southcentral Idaho on the border with Nevada. The goal is to provide the Idaho Department of Transportation (IDT) and the City and County of Twin Falls with a review of current public transportation service, and to investigate service and management/administration scenarios as the Twin Falls area anticipates growth and designation as a small urban area. The study will begin with the collection and analysis of data regarding existing public transportation service in the county and a review of demographic and related data to inform new scenarios for transit in Twin Falls. Tasks will include the development and assessment of potential service and route options, preparation of cost estimates, identification of management impacts, and development of recommendations based on the findings. The project is jointly sponsored by HCAOG and the Small, Urban, Rural and Tribal Center on Mobility (SURTCOM).
