Laramie Wants Busing

Laramie, Wy – Comment from some Laramie residents on a proposed transportation and parking master plan for the college town indicates support for a busing system.

But the bus system would have to get them close to their destination in a timely manner.

A common theme among those speaking at a forum was that Laramie has a long way to go to improve its streets to encourage walking and cycling and discourage students and faculty from driving to the University of Wyoming campus.

A consulting firm is conducting a study into the possibility of developing a master plan to link the campus, the convention center, the downtown area and West Laramie. It is part of a university and city task force on parking and transportation issues in Laramie.

Officials hope the study is finished by late-February so it can be considered by the UW Board of Trustees this summer
