City of Lubbock Working to Create Micro-Transit System
It's being said that the City of Lubbock is working to create a new micro-transit system.
KAMC News reports that even though the city's bus system, Citibus, lost around half of its ridership since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, but it has also received $9.6 million from the CARES Act.
City Manager Jarrett Atkinson says that money can be used in many ways, one of which is for micro-transit.
Atkinson says a company has been identified, and that the city will be divided into four quadrants.
A corner-to-corner service is what's being considered by the county, rather than door-to-door. Riders would call ahead or schedule ahead using an app.
