Community Input Sought For Transportation Needs
People who want to have a voice in the future of Greenville and Pitt County’s transportation options have a new way to be heard. City of Greenville transportation planners have created a survey to gather citizen input about the proposed Greenville Transportation and Activity Center (GTAC) in the city’s uptown district. The GTAC would be a centrally located transfer facility where all local and regional transportation services could connect.
The Greenville Area Transit system (GREAT bus system), Pitt Area Transit (PATS), ECU Transit, and Greyhound buses would be located there along with taxis and the new Amtrak Connector. Airport, medical, and hotel shuttles could be located there with future rail service also a possibility.
The Center would provide a covered transfer facility with seating, restrooms and more, giving people a choice of transportation options to fit their needs and meet the needs of our growing population for the next 20-30 years. It could also become an anchor for economic revitalization as it has been in other communities such as Greensboro, Durham, and Spartanburg, SC.
A fact sheet and survey on how to meet the growing needs of our future transportation are available on the City’s website at www.greenvillenc.gov. The survey can also be found on the homepages of the Greenville Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization and Greenville Area Transit (GREAT).
Everyone who has an interest in the economic vitality of Greenville and Pitt County, as well as the direction of our transit needs, is encouraged to take this survey.
