BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The New Braunfels Transit Study was funded through the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) Unified Planning Work Program in August 2018 to evaluate public transportation service options in the City of New Braunfels and potentially between San Antonio, Seguin and San Marcos. Consulting firm KFH was contracted to develop the study, which kicked off in May 2019.

 

The study was guided by an Oversight Committee comprised of representatives from City of New Braunfels, Alamo Area Council of Governments, City of Seguin, Comal County, MPO, Texas Department of Transportation, and VIA Metropolitan Transit.

 

The primary tasks included:

                     Public outreach including stakeholder interviews and briefings, focus groups, community meetings, and surveys

                     Review of existing transit services

                     Review of existing and future transit needs

                     Develop strategies for improving public transit

 

The study was completed and approved by the MPO’s Transportation Policy Board on May 24, 2021. The Final Report is available at www.nbtexas.org/transit <http://www.nbtexas.org/transit>.
