Chelan Area Public Transportation Needs Assessment Survey Underway

Information released by Link Transit

Link Transit planning staff are exploring options for improving local public transportation to serve the greater Lake Chelan area starting in the spring or early summer of 2020.

Options include a circulator within the City of Chelan, including service to the Wal-Mart area, and routes that incorporate a larger area – possibly between Manson and Chelan. In addition to service between Manson, Chelan and Wenatchee, Link currently operates these services in the Chelan area: a general public Dial-a-Ride (DART), and paratransit. In the summer of 2019, Link also operated a shuttle to local parks.

To gather information on the public transit needs of the citizens and residents of the greater Chelan area, Link will be mailing a survey to all households in the area later this month. This survey is also available online.

Link staff will be in the Chelan area periodically over the next few weeks at various locations to answer questions and get specific input from interested individuals. More information about this can be found on Link’s Facebook page.

“Link Transit’s goal is to develop public transit services that work the best for the most people”, said Eric West, Link’s Marketing and Communication Coordinator. “Citizen input is vital as we continue to lay out the best public transportation options for our communities.”
