MAYAGÜEZ TRANSIT SYSTEM

The Municipal Government of Mayagüez is working on establishing a Public Transportation System known as “Mayagüez Transist System”. As a first step and as established in the grant agreement no. PR-90-X285-00 with the Federal Transportation Administration (FTA), the municipality is conducting a study to establish a Local Preferred Alternative (LPA) through a study of analysis of alternatives known as “alternative analysis Study (AA)”.

The study lasts about 17 months. It consists of the analysis of alternatives for corridors from east to west and north to south, including starter packs, technical reports, the involvement of citizens, environmental scrutiny, among others. The preferred alternatives will be evaluated in accordance with the guidelines established by the FTA.

On Thursday, December 11th, 2014 at 5:30 pm in the Cultural Center Conference Room (next to City Hall) a public meeting will be conducted in which initial information will be presented, including possible alignments, stations, vehicles and technologies.

This notice is published in accordance with the requirements of the guidelines established by the FTA and the grant agreement no. PR-90-X285-00.
