MATS for the 2nd Round of Public Meetings

In July, you spoke, we listened.

On Tuesday, September 24th, we will present potential service improvement scenarios, based on a comprehensive analysis of existing services and feedback received from riders and non-riders through surveys and at the previous round of public meetings, held in July.

Whether you are an existing transit user or simply an interested citizen, we encourage you to attend one of the public outreach sessions to learn about the potential service improvements and share your views on how well each scenario meets the mobility needs of your community.

Public transportation is vital to the future of the Muskegon region. MATS is currently engaged in a Route Study and Comprehensive Operational Analysis that will help set priorities for transit service in the region. The aim of the study is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the existing transit network, and highlight opportunities for service improvement and expansion.

Community participation is vital to the success of this effort.

Lakeshore Drive Traffic Shift Scheduled for Sunday

Traffic on Lakeshore Drive is scheduled to be shifted to the next stage on Sunday.  On Sunday westbound vehicles will be shifted onto the new concrete roadway and work will begin on reconstructing the southern half of the roadway.  Eastbound vehicles will remain on the detour route utilizing Lincoln, Sherman and Barclay.

Work on the southern side of Lakeshore Drive is expected to progress much quicker than on the north side as there is very little underground and water main work to complete on this phase.
