Reimagine Transit project

Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Planning in coordination with the Department of Public Works is hosting public information meetings as part of the next round of updates and input on the Reimagine Transit project, an initiative to redesign the Suffolk County Bus Network and align our transit investments with community goals and priorities. More information about this initiative is available at https://connectli.org/ReimagineTransit.html.


Two virtual public meetings were held in May 2021 to share progress on the Reimagine Transit initiative, identify public priorities, and gather input regarding potential changes to the bus network. A public survey was conducted both online and in-person throughout the months of May and June 2021 to share the two transit concepts and capture feedback from transit riders, residents and other stakeholders. The project team has incorporated that feedback and is ready to introduce the Draft New Network. At this public meeting, we plan to discuss the Draft New Network and its key outcomes, and get feedback from the community.


There will be two opportunities to attend this public meeting. The meetings are planned to be held on Wednesday, March 30th 12:00pm to 2:00pm at the Maxine S. Postal Auditorium in Riverhead or via zoom and Thursday, March 31st 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the H Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge or via zoom. To register to attend for these public meetings please visit https://connectli.org/RTGetInvolved.html .


Additionally, on the aforementioned website there is an opportunity to take a survey. This survey is being circulated to the public to obtain feedback on the proposed new bus network, and help the project team finalize the draft bus route network.


To help ensure strong public engagement we kindly ask that you share this email with your contacts lists.
