New Transit Master Plan in Development

In October 2016, the City of Amarillo initiated a project to develop a new Transit Master Plan and Management Systems Review.  The new Transit Master Plan is part of the BluePrint for Amarillo – a compilation of City Council priorities and City Manager initiatives.

As part of these efforts, the City of Amarillo is seeking resident input as the Transit Master Plan is developed to identify ways to improve Amarillo City Transit fixed route services.  You are encouraged to attend one of three Open Houses to talk with transit experts, learn about new route concepts, and share your ideas and suggestions for improving Amarillo City Transit. Open Houses are scheduled for:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 25, 5 to 7 p.m.
    Alamo Community Center, 1502 S Cleveland St
    Located on Route 4, Arthur St & SE 16th Ave
  • Thursday, Jan. 26, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    Amarillo Downtown Library, 413 SE 4th Ave
    One Block East of the Transit Center
  • Thursday, Jan. 26, 5 to 7 p.m.
    United Citizen Forum Center, 901 N Hayden St
    Located on Route 1, N Hughes & NW 9th Ave or Route 1, N Hughes & Amarillo Blvd

The development of the Amarillo Master Transit Plan will continue over the next six months where there will be additional opportunities to provide input on priorities and proposed changes to the City’s public transportation services.

The City is working with the Goodman Corporation, with nearly 40 years of experience in mobility planning, to assist the City in reimagining Transit services in Amarillo and will conduct analysis and review of the City’s Transit operations in four phases:

Phase I – Community assessment analyzing the fixed routes and spec-trans services

Phase II – Develop alternative conceptual service models and test models with community input

Phase III – Develop a detailed service plan with preliminary short- and long-term investment impacts

Phase IV – Develop final recommendations and implementation strategies

The Goodman Corporation and the City encourage the completion of rider surveys and participation in stakeholder interviews, open houses, focus groups and workshops.  More information will become available as the Transit Master Plan is developed.
